Buildings 45 & 46

Former Games Room (Listed)

Early maps of Ebrington show a straw store on the site of Buildings 45 & 46. On 15 December 1887 the Londonderry Sentinel carried an article entitled “Extension of the Ebrington Barracks” reporting that “the straw store will be removed, replaced by a three-storeyed building of the regulation dimensions and construction, with massive stone walls, and stone corridors and staircases.

The object is to provide a reading and recreation room, library, manager’s quarters, shop and schoolroom, canteen steward’s quarters, and warrant officer’s quarters”. The building had to be operational by May 1888.
