Raheny Village, Dublin 5, Ireland


I was born n' bred here and it has some great ol' memories. I went to St Assams then St Pauls, Sybil Hill. My sister went to Manor House just down the road. I went to the Grove Social Club at weekends which was the same hall as I went to gym in school on a Monday morning - yeuch! Also went to the Cricket club in Clontarf

I drank in the Cedars Lounge for the most part but also went to the Green Dolphin now the Watermill. I frequented The Inn and The Station House which used to be called The Manhattan. Then there was Foxhounds and The Old Sheiling Hotel.

Macari's chipper was the regular stop off (a Godsend!) on the way home for a snack box - yummy! The chips were bleedin' deadly! ah the memories!

How about some photos of CofI church or school, or is it only for Catholics!
