  • Museums in Barracks

    Trellheim mentioned this in the archive thread, but it deserves a thread of it's own.

    How many barracks maintain their own little museums? Where are they & are they any good?

    There was one in Clonmel last time I was there, is it still in operation

        Renmore, Galway

        There’s one in Dun Ui Mhaoilisa (someone check spelling!) in Galway. I’ve never been in it but I’ve heard it’s very good with a lot of stuff on the Connaught Rangers.

              A tiny one in Dundalk!

              Aikens barracks has a wee one which is maintained by members of the MP's (little else to be doing) ayways it's very small and not much there considering the past history of the barracks from occupation by the British-Free state-Civil war-Emergency-troubles etc.
              It is ashame that all barracks do not have a military museum!
              On a fitting note I would love one day to see a museum set up to convey the entire period of the troubles of the Isle of Ireland, I know the national museum caters for this to a small degree, if it was done correctly it could become a major tourist centre?
              Well theres my two cents on the whole issue!

                There are plans for a national military museum. This was part of the agreement when Collins Bks in Dublin was handed over to the National Museum.
