The chq Building hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856.

Three thousand six hundred and thirty eight bearded and battle-hardened Crimean War veterans marched into the tobacco warehouse known as Stack A, or The chq Building, on Dublin’s Custom House Quay. 

Lord Mayor Farrell was of the opinion that Ireland’s Crimean veterans should be celebrated as heroes. On 19th August 1856, he began a subscription campaign for a massive banquet for 4000 soldiers.The campaign proved enormously popular. Within weeks, there was a budget of £3,588 to green light the banquet.

Did you know?


Built in 1820, The chq Building's original purpose was to store considerable, and valuable, cargos of tobacco, tea and spirits. Tobacco and tea were kept in separate compartments above ground and Wine and spirit casks were stored in extensive vaults below.
