Richmond Barracks
Dublin, Ireland

Margaret (Meg Connery), Mabel Purser, Barbara Hoskins and Margaret Cousins were members of the Irish Women's Franchise League in Dublin who broke windows in Dublin Castle in 1913 and were jailed in Tullamore Jail, Co Offaly. Dublin Castle was the headquarters of the British Government in Ireland and they thought it prudent to remove the women from their support base in Dublin.
