The Barracks – Audio Tour
Local historian, Frank Boland, takes us on an audio tour of the
housing estate known as the Barracks. It is loosely based on
Frank’s book – ‘From the Barrack Gate to the Watering Gates’,
about the history of the houses in the estate and its residents.
The ‘tour’ begins on the Main St., at the Barrack Gate, between
the Town Hall and the Garda Station, and then goes through the estate, down to the watering gates,
fi nishing on the Main St. beside the Riverbank Arts Centre. This recording is designed to be listened
to in the comfort and safety of your own home. Perhaps you may want to take the same journey and
follow in Frank’s footsteps as he guides you through the history of the Barracks housing estate.
