History of Hollybrook House
|Liz Kelly||12/07/2012||Hi There, just wondering if anyone knows the history of Hollybrook House, 55 Naas Road. Just opened a counselling centre and it is a listed building, so we would be really interesed in the history. To date all we found out is the lady who lived here used to nurse soliders back to heath. So we would be delighted to find small piece of information. Many thanks|

I'm interested in any information on Hollybrook house too. My partner's mother's family used to own the house in the 40s/50s/60s. We trying to find any pictures of it and sourrounding areas. Her father used to own a bottling plant in Inchicore called Elite Bottlers but I can't find anything online.
Look forward to any info you may have.

|Chris M||26/02/2016||I continue to find snippets / news articles about Hollybrook House... up for sale in 1867, address of CM Warren Jan 1869; his son Francis B Warren was shot in chest (lived) when 3 men broke in Oct 1920; res of sons of CMW (Francis B Warren & John Joseph Warren Oct 1920). I think both died in the mid 20's. |
I also would love to have copies of photos, doc.s or info passed along.... Thx!
My great grandfather lived in this house. He and his three brothers took part in the 1916 rising. I have a copy of statements they made after the rising if you are interested?
