Heritage Tower

This is the last remaining turret of the former gaol, demolished in the 1970s and is now used as a heritage centre exhibiting artefacts and memorabilia dating from World War I to the present day. You can also view models and paintings that are on display in the tower, as well as some of the oldest wall murals painted by local artist Robert Jackson.

The gaol was originally built in 1791 though the Tower was a 19th Century addition(1824) and built as a hanging tower, it was here that Wolf Tone (a leader of the United Irishmen) was held after his capture at Rathmullan, Co. Donegal in 1798.
