A section of the Old Barracks corner building has been washed away as a result of the latest high tide in Ennis.
Ongoing pressure from recent storms in the county has taken some of the building attached to the Old Barracks on the River Fergus in Lifford, Ennis.
An Garda Síochána were first informed of the damage on Sunday afternoon, shortly after its occurrence. The Clare Echo understands that the section of the building first became detached around midday on Sunday.
Height levels on the River Fergus have almost reached peak levels in the past three weeks due to ongoing rainfall. A status yellow rainfall warning is in place for Co Clare over a twenty four hour period from 5am on Monday to 5am on Tuesday.
Now owned by the Office of Public Works (OPW), the building has served as a Royal Irish Constabulary barracks, Garda station and Army reserve.
