Were you born under the shadow of the water tower?    For some people this water tower is an intrinsic part of their identity, because they were born under its shadow in the Woman’s Maternity Hospital on the Curragh Camp.  It is a literal statement.   This building symbolises home. The water tower was designed by architect Richard Randall and built by Collen Construction.  It was completed in 1908.  It houses the fire station for the military camp and was one of the first purpose built fire stations in Ireland.
