Ballinamult (Irish: Béal na Molt, meaning " the Gap of Weathers") is a hamlet in County Waterford situated near the border with County Tipperary.[1] It is in the historic Sliabh gCua district between the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains.

Ballinamult Barracks[edit]

The barracks was built by 1714 as it features on a map of that date by Herman Moll and it is described as a redoubt for twenty men. It was situated on a bluff on the East bank of the Finisk River guarding access to County Tipperary.[2] In 1918, the garrison consisted of a Sergeant and three constables. Later on this was increased by a party of about a dozen soldiers.[3]
