Dear Friends, My Grandfather John Charles Slattery served here. His Spouse was Hanora Hoare. I am attempting to locate his son: Eamon D Slattery (Whom I never met) I pray and hope you can help me, with pictures, memories and anecdotes. They originated from County Clare.
Tralee Barracks aka Ballymullen Barracks was built local militia units between 1810 and 1815.
- In 1873 the barracks became the depot for the 101st Regiment of Foot (Royal Bengal Fusiliers) and 104th Regiment of Foot (Bengal Fusiliers).
- In 1881, these regiments amalgamated to form the Royal Munster Fusiliers here.
- The Royal Munster Fusiliers were disbanded in 1922.
Following Irish independence, the barracks were taken over by the forces of the Free State in August 1922. A newly refurbished headquarters block was opened at the barracks in April 2002.
