Visited the museum today. A real treasure trove, could easily spend an hour looking through the impressive displays. There was also a military vehicle display on outside which added to the atmosphere. Well worth a visit!

An interesting journey through items of Carlow military interest. I was very impressed by the display of Myles Keoghs uniform. Myles fell at the battle of the Little Bighorn fighting in the Indian wars, having survived over military actions during his career.
