Ivar McGrath

I am a senior lecturer in the School of History and Archives, UCD. The original idea for mapping the barracks emerged out a chapter on the subject in my 2012 book, Ireland and Empire, 1692-1770 (London: Pickering and Chatto, 2012). There may also have been a residual hangover from my previous career prior to becoming a historian, given that I spent three years serving as a private soldier in the Irish army in 1983-6, including six months with UNIFIL in 1984-5.
