Ballymullen Barracks is an Irish military installation at Tralee, County Kerry in Ireland.HistoryThe barracks were built for local militia units between 1810 and 1815. In 1873 a system of recruiting areas based on counties was instituted under the Cardwell Reforms and the barracks became the depot for the 101st Regiment of Foot (Royal Bengal Fusiliers) and 104th Regiment of Foot (Bengal Fusiliers). Following the Childers Reforms, the 101st and 104th regiments amalgamated to form the Royal Munster Fusiliers with its depot in the barracks in 1881. The Royal Munster Fusiliers were disbanded at the time of Irish Independence in 1922. The barracks were taken over by the Irish Republican Army in February 1922 and then secured by the forces of the Irish Free State in August 1922. The barracks continued to be used by the Irish Army and a newly refurbished headquarters block was opened at the barracks in April 2002. The site was also used as a reception centre for asylum seekers until the centre closed in 2005.
