About this event

On the 17th of December 1922, General Sir Nevil Macready of the British Army handed over the Royal Barracks to Commander-in-Chief of the National Army of the Irish Free State General Richard Mulcahy.

It was immediately renamed in honour of Mulcahy’s predecessor Michael Collins, and is still known today as Collins Barracks.

Booking not required, however spaces are offered on a first-come first-served basis.
