Cootehill Barracks
« on: Sunday 20 November 16 18:29 GMT (UK) »
Is anyone aware of any images of the barracks at Cootehill where a distant relative was serving in 1922, please?
I have Googled to no avail.
Many thanks.

I wonder if it could be the former RIC barracks, on the OSI Mapviewer there is a Constable barracks on New Cavan Street. Although in 1911 it only has 5 men, and rates as a 4 which is a building with 7,8 or 9 rooms.
