Athlone No1. Gun Battery Heritage Group
Athlone No. 1 Gun Battery is the sole surviving gun battery in Athlone from the Napoleonic period. The community has put a conservation and restoration plan into action which has assisted with the clearance of heavy overgrowth and a view towards next steps in the conservation of the site. The Committee are delighted to share this video, telling the story of the significance of the gun battery and what it means to them, to celebrate National Heritage Week 2021.
