Geneva Barracks in County Waterford, Ireland, was a barracks created in 1783 by converting a settlement which had been created for an 18th-century colony (New Geneva) of disaffected citizens of Geneva. Built near Passage East, the colony was commissioned by the Irish Parliament and approved by British Royalty. After the Genevans abandoned their plans to settle in Waterford, the colony became a British military barracks which gained notoriety as a deadly holding centre for rebel prisoners during and after the 1798 rebellion. Today, the only remains of New Geneva are its ruined walls in a grassy field.
