Re: scall Dalkey

Will always be called The Bus Lawn until the end of the Baby Boomers. I still recall when the Terminus was outside the school gates. You were probably talking to Gertie, Rocker! The Oracle on all things Dalkey. I must ask more questions. It just came up in a conversation about my distant maternal G...

Re: scall Dalkey

Was talking to an old Dalkey resident yesterday and we were talking about St Patrick's Road. She told me that in her youth it was always referred to as "The Bus Lawn" because the buses stopped and turned outside the Harold School!! Interesting I'd never heard that before!!

Re: Somewhere to Chat.

The CUs have no option. They are being CHARGED for depositing (i.e. losing) members' money in the wholesale markets (because wholesale deposit rates are negative; Central Banks want people to spend, not save). Even if they were allowed to gamble with it (Irish Nationwide-style) on, say, the stock m...

Toss, in privileged areas, rugby is one avenue of approach for youth sporting excellence engaged within schools in those areas.

Thanks to you all. I did feel shaken. In my nearly 70 years I have never had anyone spit at me! I wasn't frightened just felt violated. If only I hadn't had the window rolled down.

Thanks for that information Micheál. Never knew that. I went on the tour of the graveyard a few years ago and enjoyed it. I'd say the guides get the blurb details from the Council. When I lived in Deansgrange a very old neighbour (who have lived in houses behind the Tara Tower in his childhood) told...
