Knockaloe Hut, Marown

During the First World War, nearly 24,000 civilians from enemy nations who were resident in the UK in 1914 were imprisoned in an internment camp at Knockaloe farm in Patrick.

The camp was three miles in circumference and housed the internees in hundreds of wooden huts. At the end of the war the internees were released and the camp returned to its use today as farm land. However, some of the huts were sold off to private owners for various purposes.

One became "The Bungalow," at house at Marown in use until May 2005, when these photographs were taken.
