Wow, what an unexpected explore.

I had looked at this place on wednesday but was locked up tight. Driving past on thursday and happen to notice the door was open! Well I nearly crashed trying to get back to it.

This place is amazing, very moody! Only had an hour of free time but could easily spend all day here.

HISTORY:

"the gaol, which was constructed between 1780 and 1819 in two significant stages actually comprised three prisons – one for women, one for debtors and one for felons - as well as buildings like the block treadmill and engine house. Further extensions occurred in 1865 and the gaol remained a working place of incarceration until its closure in 1986." ref: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/programmes/restoration/2004/ni_armagh_gaol_01.shtml
