Mullinahone police station

Mullinahone police station, Mullinahone, Co.Tipperary.
This page covers the old station (Callan St) and the new station (Killaghy St).

George Cashel was stationed in Co.Tipperary, S.R., from 1833 to 1858.
He was stationed at the old Mullinahone police station, Callan St (now Kickham St), Mullinahone, in at least 1838 to 1844.
He left Mullinahone and was head of Lismalin police station, near Mullinahone, from at least 1846 to 1854.

1848 Rising:
Mullinahone police station was briefly captured by the rebels without a fight on 26 July 1848, in the Young Irelanders' rising of 23-29 July 1848.
The police escaped with their weapons, in a retreat that was named the "races of Mullinahone".
One of the younger rebels in Mullinahone in 1848 was George Cashel's wife's 1st cousin, Charles Joseph Kickham of Mullinahone.
See Kickham's account in [Maher, 1942, pp.182-185]. See account in [Maher, 1955, pp.141-144] and [Comerford, 1979].

The new Mullinahone police station, Killaghy St, Mullinahone, was built c.1849.
George Cashel returned to Mullinahone and was head of the new Mullinahone police station 1855 to 1858.
His wife's 1st cousin, Charles Joseph Kickham of Mullinahone, was becoming an increasingly prominent enemy of the state at this time.
George Cashel was transferred out of Co.Tipperary in 1858, maybe because of Kickham's activities.

The Killaghy St station became an RIC station.
After 1922, it became a Garda station.
It was a Garda station until around the 1950s.
Then a home.
Became derelict around 1992.
There was an attempt as at 2013 to restore it as a home again.
The plan was abandoned after some limited progress.

It is still derelict.
It was up for sale again at auction on 8 Feb 2022.
