The Red Ghosts

Red Ghosts

During Cromwell's reign he is said to have passed through Dún a Rí across the bridge, now known as "Cromwell's Bridge", and temporarily occupied the forest and its environs. The old Military Barracks was built by the Pratt family and used by Colonel Joseph Pratt as a stable around the year 1800 and was also used as a barracks to house British troops. Now six "Red Ghost" sculptures by Joey Burns are suspended over the old military barracks at Dún a Rí. Each "Red Ghost" represents a county in Northern Ireland symbolising the British occupation in a sensitive manner.
