    in a move with times,the highly military style police barracks at crossmaglen is to be closed and moved to a new station at manorhamilton


    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-58388328.amp




    Memorial to ruc officers killed,to be moved out of lobby,and the armed foot patrols to be wound down,irish.signage to be introduced among others....



    Scene of dozens of attacks (and killings) throughout the troubles,most infamous likely being the slurry tanker firethrower attack seen here https://youtu.be/ti65jgUtk4w



    Given its history and prominence to the local grounds,should the irish state/GAA purchase the site and repurpose it to promote irish nationlist issues??
