?mtext, also ?barplot since barplot returns midpoints of the bars.

also ?rep for setting up a vector of repeating values.

something like this:
xLabels<-c(rep("2003",4),rep("2005",11),rep("2006",5)) midPoints<-barplot(<your original statements here>) mtext(xLabels,side=1,at=apply(midPoints,2,mean))
