Huge interest has been generated with the creation of the Kilmacud Facebook page in June of this year. Ex-pats, spread far and wide around the world are rekindling fond memories of the place where they spent their formative years.
A series of short Car-Cam Tours of the locality has also created great interest and can be viewed on Facebook.
Kilmacud ~ Cill Mhic Oda, The Church of the Son of Oda.
A suburb in South Dublin, Ireland in the local authority area of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, west of Stillorgan Village, north of Sandyford, east of Dundrum and south of Goatstown.
Kilmacud is a collection of housing estates built in the early 1950's by a range of samll private construction companies. In recent years the landscape of Kilmacud has changed dramatically with the construction of new link roads, buildings, the introduction of many new businesses, and of course the arrival of the Luas running on the old Harcourt Street line.
These pages are being developed in the hope that local business's, clubs and organisations will have a presence on the Kilmacud website. We are also asking local residents to submit old photographs, historical information or any other items that might be of interest.
L to R: Phil Tierney, Shay Clarke, Mickey Davitt. This is taken in O'Rourke's Pub in Blackrock on Monday night last. Mickey went back to Dingle , Phil to London and myself back here to Chicago. It was great to see my boyhood pals again. (Click on photo to enlarge)
Same location - as it was in times past (top), and as it looks today. Sadly, the Little Flowers Shop (was Walleces Self Service), recently ceased trading.
