Re: Dean's Grange

Yes Rocker, a great shop. This establishment has more or less come back home if I remember correctly, the forebears of the owner were local builders who built Corrig Park and lived on Corrig Road. I think they also owned Cooney's Pub

Re: Somewhere to Chat.

Micheál - You are right about the division BUT these houses will be sold as being in Killiney and will carry top market prices. The development will not change the housing shortage in any way. Not a single person on DLRCOCO housing list will be moved as a result of these 47 units. The trees I wrote ...

Re: Somewhere to Chat.

Wow again - 47 units all emptying onto a Village road within 50 yards of primary school! The mind boggles at some of these decisions. I never saw this planing application but did access the 'GRANT' decision this afternoon. DLRCOCO had a current planning application for 4 Oakton Court, this is access...

Toss, I would not have a problem with Irish service members having free transport. On another matter entirely, to-day for the first time since January I walked along Church Road, Ballybrack. Between St. John's School and the Village on the left hand side there are 3/4 vacant houses - ALL THE TREES o...

Re: anybody know or remember James Smith from Patrick street?

I would have to go down and check, but, I think that house was built in the 1970's/80's. The house to the left was at one time occupied by Paddy Darcy plumber for the Lords of the Soil. When these 'new' houses were build one of them was occupied by a brother of Noel Furlong. The house with the red d...

Re: Around the town.

Strum, perhaps my eyes are misaligned, the pier does not appear to be in proper alignment. The railway station is built on quite a steep slope so perhaps the top of it is a little off kilter.

Micheál, some of what you say is true. During the past few years there have been several Government Bonds in which Credit Unions could invest. Credit Unions are 'not for profit', business lending is not what they should be doing. Rocker is correct in saying it is the older, long standing, members wh...
