I never shop in Dalkey but my neighbour gave me the most delicious meal the other night with all produce bought locally in small shops in Dalkey. The best sausages I have had for years which came from Hicks and salmon which tasted of salmon from Roberts fish shop not to mention the apple tart from the little bakery can't remember the name. Set me thinking I have to alter my shopping pattern!!

In both Dalkey and Glasthule you can get good fresh food. I think Donal, son of John Hick (sallynoggin shop) now has the shop in Dalkey. His sausages are great and sometime you can get pork chops with kidney in his shop- mouth watering..

Saw this photo on a postcards site the other day and thought it was a good image of the Castle.

The Protestant Church is on Harbour Road on the way down to Bullock and Our Lady's Manor on the left hand side.

Thanks Rocker, I was only there a couple of years ago at a car boot sale but I couldn't place it, the wall being the most obvious. I'm losing it. :roll: thumbright :lol:

Wall still there. It's just that there are very high cypress trees overhanging now so church is not visible when approaching from Bulloch.

By the way, the site over the wall is famous. And not just because is hosts the home of a certain broadcasting personality or has helped several legal types achieve enhanced pensions. It is the site of a former quarry from which granite was shipped out of Bulloch to build the Houses of Commons and parts of London's Embankment. Apparently, the Bulloch granite was favoured because of its superior quality.

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!!

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 Grandmother's family living in various houses on Patrick's Road. The stories they could tell about old place names and old Dalkey characters. Wish someone had written it down at the time!!

Only last night, I learned that the area on Ardbrugh Road at the top of the "Flags" is known locally as "The Machine". Presumably because, back in the day, it was the site of some piece of quarry-related equipment.

We had lunch in the 1909 restaurant on Castle Street today and I noticed as we left that this building had been the Dalkey Dispensary. Did anyone ever do the history of the building? when was the dispensary closed? did it look after only Dalkey?
