St Michael’s Estate, Inchicore, Dublin
Built in 1814, this was one of Dublin’s largest British Army barracks. It was here that over 3,000 men and women involved in the 1916 Easter Rising were held following the surrender. In addition to six of the seven signatories of the Proclamation and seven others later executed at Kilmainham Gaol, other notable Irish people held here include: Eamon De Valera, Countess Markievicz, Michael Collins, Arthur Griffith, William T. Cosgrave, Eoin MacNeill, Thomas Ashe, Noel Lemass and Sean T. O’Kelly. The Barracks was recently completely renovated as part of the National commemorative projects for the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
