Great link Rocker

A lot of "never-knew-that" material there.
And maybe a day out for the Board following one of those guided walks?

Now you are talking...but, it is fairly uphill around Killiney. Ballybrack on the flat might be a good place to start...I have been thinking about trying to trace the history of the IGO Inn..it intrigues me every time I go by and that old hall up the back where I have never gone either...Keeper get out your compass you can lead us....what am I saying...i am a couch potato!

Well done Dancer, great photos. I think the "I'd love to live here" is the Edge's kip. The one with the huge Palm is Joe Elliott's kip with Bono's kip on the right. ;)

The one with the urns at the gate is Gorse Hill. It's currently in the courts with the Bank of Ireland seeking repossession from people called Donnelly, who were (are?) trying to be declared bankrupt in London. They are claiming that the house is held in an Isle of Man trust in their childrens' names and cannot be repossessed. At the height of the boom it was valued at 30m, now it's 6-7m. Mad or what?

I knew the people in Gorse Hill when I was a youngster, Dr Ashe, his wife was a lovely lady, I hung around with their kids and spent a lot of time in the house, always remember there were lots of wild rabbits about giving their gardener a hard time ! Dr Ashe didn't want them harmed but the gardener wanted them gone, by any means !! Often wondered what happened to the family. I know the Dr died and when I knew Mrs Ashe she was fighting cancer but seemed to have recovered, don't suppose I'll ever know now.

Strum,

That is great footage. We need to resurrect that custom....I remember there used to be a crowning of the King of Dalkey island when i was a teenager...but, I think it was held in the town. Then there were pram races and three legged races down Castle Street...am I dreaming or did this happen...had we too much drink taken? I remember Frank Mullen had the title for a while.

I don't know Killiney very well so have been snooping around looking at roads. A lot of places are difficult to see into with gates and walls so I was delighted to find this dlr co.co. conservation document. some interesting details of roads and houses and good photos.

Found this video of Killiney Beach in 1937. Hope my granny was there. It looked a great place to be then.

Strum,

Could you please also post that wonderful photo of the Tea Rooms at killiney in this Topic just to have it remembered when it goes off the Portal. It says it all about what those tea rooms were about a wonderful escape for hard pressed people to get a chance of a few days by the sea or an evening dancing and singing away from the mundane.

Thanks Strum,

Great photo, my Uncle Harry played the violin with a band that played for the Sunday afternoon Summer tea dances. He always told yarns about playing there but alas I can't remember any, he emigrated to London a few years before WW2, saw out the War years there and then to Australia, he came home for his last few years, sadly he couldn't play the violin anymore because of arthritis in his hands. I remember him telling me who was in the band, but I can't remember, the only one I think I remember is Tommy Breen, a banjo player, think he lived around Killiney, I vaguely remember great music sessions in our house on Ballinclea Road when I was very young. This has me thinking now, when was that photo taken, 1923, I think it is just possible he's there, my Dad was born in 1910 and Harry was 2nd eldest so that would put him in his 20's, out the magnifying glass !
