Queen St. RUC Barracks
« on: November 12, 2018, 07:48:35 AM »


Was in the pub on Saturday afternoon and this question was brought up, why is there a cross above the old derelict RUC barracks in Queen Street... anybody know?
God bless you President Trump.

Jack,as far as I am aware it was originally a Children`s Hospital with a Mental Section

also within it.
This was from 1878-1932 when it moved to the Falls Road.
From 1933-2000 it was the Police Barracks.
The building became listed in 1979.
However,nothing seems to being done to preserve it.
