"Castle of Enniskillen"

Harding, James Duffield
Hand coloured lithograph
Height: 15cm
Width: 22cm
In the 1820s, Enniskillen Castle was the centre of a thriving barracks. This image shows the Castle complex before the building of the Curved Range, added on to the left of the twin-turreted Watergate. Some of the barrack buildings shown here no longer exist, including the lean-to shed housing the 'privies' set in front of the Watergate. This hand coloured lithograph was made by James Duffield Harding after a sketch by Robert O'Callaghan Newenham. Newenham was Inspector-General of Barracks in Ireland, as well as an architect and topographical draughtsman. On his tours of inspection, Newenham made drawings of antiquities, buildings and scenery. Some of these drawings were later lithographed by James Duffield Harding, printed by Charles Joseph Hullmandel and published in 1826.
