Built in 1792, it is Ireland's most famous disused prison. It held throughout the years many famous Nationalists and Republicans in members of the Society of United Irishmen (1798), Young Irelanders (c1840s), Fenians and Land agitators, Parnell, Davitt. The leaders of the 1916 Ester Rising were executed here. The prison was closed in 1924. This building gives a good insight into the history of Irish Republicanism.
Probably me being fanciful but I could feel the misery emanating from the walls...

    Not too fanciful, Eithne. The history is a study in misery. Very powerful.

    Mmmm...does send the shivers down the spine Eithne. The rustic and ominous Black and white of the image suggests another time, and great history. Thank you for giving me an insight into the history of it.
