The Ghosts of The Mullingar Arts Centre

Mullingar Arts Centre opened in 1998 on a site with a long and sometimes bloody history. In the 12th-century, a castle was constructed on the site and this remained until its replacement by the county jail in 1789. In one week alone, ten men were hanged at the gates. In the early 1900s, a new county house was built on the site and this is now home to the popular venue. It would appear that some of those who were executed on the site now haunt the centre.
