The Old Military Barracks was constructed in 1798 by Lord De Freyne and Viscount Dillon after the Rebellion. It was built to monitor the crossing of the Lung River. The building is said to have its very own ghost, a British Soldier, who hung himself here. According to locals the ghost haunts the corridors of the old building each year on the 3rd of November. In 1896, the barracks became home to the towns secondary school, St. Nathy’s College, named after the patron saint of the diocese.
