Kilmainham Gaol (Jail)

    Newer Older

    This is the newer, Victorian wing. Kilmainham was built in the 1780s as one of the first reform prisons, with a new focus in keeping inmates separate. Many political prisoners were jailed and executed in Kilmainham before it was closed in 1924.

      Such history in this place. A very sad spot indeed.

      It looks a lot like the interior shots from Shawshank Redemption.

      The story is sad, but the stairs and corridors structure that you pictured so well, is beautiful

      Recognized this one right away. Great work making the dark dingy old gaol look interesting.

      Beautiful shot. Was in there during the day and shot black and white, this has such a different tone...
