Turvey Avenue Cottages Demolition
|Brian Carroll||10/08/2010||Hi, my late uncle Leo Nolan [1904-1966] lived all his life in a terraced cottage at 20 Turvey Ave., off Emmet Rd, Inchicore.|
I am researching my family history, and I am wondering if any local person knows why and when these cottages were demolished?
Thank you Brian Carroll, Newcastle West, Co Limerick
|Mary Mc||11/08/2010||As far as I know the houses were demolished because they became derelict. The new houses were built around 1984.|
|Brian Carroll||13/08/2010||Hi Mary, many thanks for your reply to my enquiry. Do you know if the cottages were privately owned or corporation property?|
P.S. My parents were married and I was christened in St Michael's Church.
|Mary Mc||14/08/2010||Brian, I don't think they were Corporation but I am not certain.|
|Brian Carroll||15/08/2010||Hi Mary, many thanks, I will check with Dublin City Council Archive.|

|Gil Galvin||16/08/2012||I have just found your site and was fascinated to read about the interest in Turvey Ave as I was born in number 10 in 1939 . I was told by my parents that the whole avenue was built with the intention of having them pulled down and the owner to receive goverment compensation ..As far as I can remember back ( left there on the emigration boat to work in London when I was about 15 ).They were ,even then , declared unfit for human habitation but the funds were not available to rehouse the inhabitants , so families remained in them .I feel lucky that my brothers and sisters survived those unhealthy conditions. . Its also interesting to find out who owned them; "The Barnwell Estate " .Is that The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. or a different|
Irish company .It would be surely ironical if it was, as I became a fairly well known photographer for the British Sunday magazines and for The Field Magazine and took lots of photographs of the British aristocracy including them . If it was them I would have given them a bit of my mind
