Killmanham Gaol

Great new picture exhibition on 1916 and the tan war on the third floor of the jail. Enjoyed the tour this morning as there was a big crowd there. I learned a new fact, that over 500 women were interned there in 1923.

Pearse McLoughlin, a great friend of Joe Brady, was the first organiser of the restoration of the jail in 1960. Worth a vist over the hoilday period.
