The old Bagenalstown police station, Kilree St

It is unclear which police station Cashel was at - the old one or the new one.

The old Bagenalstown police station on 1829 to 1842 map.
This location is Kilree St (see modern map).

[Griffiths Valuation, 1852] has the police station at plot 1, Kilree St.

Dunne's shop (O'Duinn), the green house here on Kilree Street, is described in many places as the old police station.
It is at the right location.
See street view.

The new Bagenalstown police station, Barrett St

The new Bagenalstown police station on 1887 to 1913 map.
The station was on Barrett St. See 1901 census and 1911 census.

The Poplars, Barrett Street, appears to be the former RIC station.
See street view.
Article says it was built 1920, but this may be an error for 1820.
Its entry (CW388) in "Carlow County Council Record of Protected Structures" says it is early 19th century, but does not mention the police station.
