Kilmainham Richmond tower images, 19th century gatehouse

Historic Dublin city gate tower building in Kilmainham.
Richmond Tower was formerly one of Dublin city's 19th century gatehouses. Built of Dublin granite it was designed by Francis Johnson & named after the Duke of Richmond who formally opened it in 1812. In the 19th century it was located at the junction of Watling Street & Victoria Quay.
When the railway terminal at nearby Kingsbridge (now Heuston) station opened in 1846, the resultant increase in traffic caused congestion daily at the gatehouse junction. In 1847 the tower was deconstructed & relocated a short distance away to it's current location at the entrance drive & West Avenue at the  Royal Hospital Kilmainham.
