Columb Barracks and Military Museum,

Business Genre
Long Business Description

The new museum is located in the old guard room adjacent to the main gate. It is a most suitable location, as thousands of soldiers of differing race, creeds, uniforms and corps, have toiled in its hall and cells since it was built in 1815. This is also the very building in which the legendary Gen Sean McEoin, ‘the blacksmith of Ballinalee’ was incarcerated in March 1921. This followed his arrest at Mullingar train station by British forces.

This museum was formerly known as the Columb Barracks and Military Museum until the barracks closed. We are listing here under its former name until such time as it is renamed.

It is currently located at:

Custume Barracks
Co. Westmeath.
