The Ballinamuck Visitor Centre in County Longford presents a lively exhibition which gives details of the Year of the French and the Battle of Ballinamuck which took place in 1798.

The Ballinamuck Visitor Centre in County Longford is located in the historic former Royal Irish Constabulary barracks in the picturesque village of Ballinamuck in north County Longford. The centre was officially opened by Mary McAleese, then President of Ireland, in July 1999 and houses a fascinating and lively exhibition.

The exhibition explains the background to these events and the national and international significance of the collision of forces around this County Longford village.
