Catherine Currivan08/08/2009I've just been reading this out to my mother and, apart from the fact that Joe Carr was a renowned golfer,he was also an icon in the fashion trade around Dublin in those days. She was in the accounts dept. in Roches Stores at the time. Thanks for the memory!
mary mccarthy09/08/2009Joe Carr was born to George and Mary Water and adopted when he was 10 days old. He was the fifth of seven children, did they remain in Inchicore. Were any other well known people born in Inchicore. I heard the Mother of the Nolan sisters hails from here. Just curious
Catherine Currivan09/08/2009The Bachelors from Tyrconnell Park.
Remember "Charmaine" "Diane", "Ramona".Just saw them on "Reeling in the Years" the other day. Early Sixties Top of the Pops.

Gerry Mc Geough10/08/2009Micheal, that is an astounding list!
Michael O'Flanagan10/08/2009Thanks Gerry........ I've just added a biography of Joe Carr to the History section.
gerry mc geough12/08/2009Micheal, are you aware of the upcoming replay of the 1889 all ireland final between dublin and clare to be played in the pond field on the 19th of sept to commemorate the 120th anniversary of inchicore hosting the final?
there is a lot of work going on in the background and we are in need of a historian to point us the right direction on many matters relating to that time.
Michael O'Flanagan12/08/2009"Nobody tells me anything." I was totally unaware that this very worthwhile event was being planned. I have very little expertise on GAA matters. Seosamh O’Broin has dealt with this very comprehensively in his book “ Inchicore , Kilmainham and District.” Nonetheless, thanks again Gerry.

catherine currivan22/08/2009There was a shop,O'Reilly's which sold novelty toys. My brother who went to The Model often bought things there. I seem to recall "Brassinton's" a timber merchant's opposite The Oblates and highly visible from the top deck of the 51 bus.
Mary mc22/08/2009 Marie Brady is someone who should get a mentin, also John O'Brien. Wally O'Shea was a great person in Vincent de Paul as is Margaret Sommerville at present. Phil McGibney and Kay O'Keeffe, Mary Keogh
mary mc23/08/2009mr &mrs jack hayes fostered 208 children. Peter Hartnett and Betty Hartnett and Nan Murray
mary mc23/08/2009Michael your list could go on forever. Mick Donohoe who was caretaker of Goldenbridge Cemetery
catherine currivan23/08/2009Here's a question! Where's "The Bungalow" in Inchicore? My dad's brother's wife,Nancy Coates(nee Brady) R.I.P. was always referred to as coming from "The Bungalow" It's a real local placename like "The Mill Yard" in Clondalkin.
catherine currivan23/08/2009Just heard another number from "The Bachelors" on the radio. "I wouldn't trade you for the world." Must check them out on You Tube.
Michael O'Flanagan23/08/2009A new article has been added to the history section on The Little Sisters of The Poor
t jones23/08/2009who remembers dan walls. the snooker hall and cafe
Catherine Currivan25/08/2009Found out where "The Bungalow" was:an area between Ring St. and what is now Tyrconnell Pk. Hope we don't lose these place names not on the map like the "pond field" in the CIE and "the hillocks "which used to be where Yellow Meadows housing estate is now.

Liam Hyland21/01/2013I left Emmet Rd. 55 years ago,aged 22. Used to live at No.11 opposite the library.Our playground was across the Camac under the walls of the jail.I was in the same class as Con Clusky(Bachelors) in St.Michaels CBS.Anyone recall Sunday night dancing in the Mhuire? Father Devine intervening if you got too close to your dance partner.Having your shoes resoled by Johnny Whelan.The excitement when Jack Doyle turned up at the Rose Tavern with the movie "actress" Movita.And the back seat at the Inchicore cinema.Priceless past.
SHEA CARROL23/01/2013Liam,I have lived in 11 Emmet Road since 1987.If you are ever in the area and would like to look around your old home feel free to call in.We might even manage Tea and Biscuits!
Liam Hyland23/01/2013Thanks Shea.I took my grandson to see it about eight years ago.Nostalgia.Is the orchard still at the back?Nicked many a bagful of pears from it.Now retired in Ashford,Kent.Served my time in the ESB.Neighbours were Thomsons,Callaghans ,Lowry,Corbetts,O'Driscolls,Sullivans,Bevans.All gone I imagine.Slainte.
Shea Carroll24/01/2013Liam,Norman Thompson and Jimmy O Driscoll still live on the road.The rest of the names I`m not familiar with.The Orchard is now an apartment block.Hope you`re enjoying your retirement.
Michael O'Flanagan17/02/2013Hi! Guys I just put a photo of The orchard up on the Gallery. Hope you like.
Liam Hyland17/02/2013Corner of South Circular and Emmet Rd.Many an ice cream I had from there!!!!However the orchard in question was at the rear of Nos 13 to 19 Emmet Rd. and belonged to the Rose Tavern.
Shea Carroll18/02/2013That`s a great photo Michael! I notice that there are no cars parked on the footpath either!
Finbarr Roche05/03/2013Hi Michael
I see a Tom Tighe on your list. Is this old railway Tom Tighe? He built the train used to train signalmen and guardsmen. it was in the training section just inside of the Rings Street gate. He was also the man who designed and built the Fry's railway which was in Malahide Castle. I worked on the Butt Bridge section with him. I was always disappointed that he did not get more credit for the work that he done on the project.
regards Finbarr Ex Works 1961 to 1983
Tony Obrien26/06/2013Still Quite a few Familys ,That were Lnked to The Ralway Works , stll Live in The Area.

Kathleen Currivan29/06/2013The Currivans are here since John Currivan came up from Tipp. to work for the railway around 1900. Love being near my roots. My own family, Coateses,have been in Clondalkin village for centuries, according to old records. As you get older you become closer to your origins, I think.

Pat Donnelly30/07/2013Hi Michael,
I'm doing genealogical research of the Tuite family who were bakers in Dublin in the nineteenth century. I know Francis Tuite had a mill in Kilmainham and was a corn chandler of 84 James's St. I wonder if the Francis on your list of August 2009 is connected in any way.
By the way, I'm a niece of the late Fr. Joseph Horan OMI who is also on your list.
I would appreciate any help on the matter.
