Thats a good one all right Holla, funny how a name can stand out in your memory. I,m wondering was the nickname "Kite" common to that name and why.

Update and maybe name changes to the residents of Avondale -
This I have from a really good source-
O'Shaughnessy
Creighton
plus there was also a slaughter house behind the cottages

Grammer,

This is probably a set up, but , i'll ask the question. What date was that then? Creighton and slaughter sound almost political even Fiscal :?: :!:

the middle to late 1800s Rocker -
I maybe wrong with this but I think the people in Avondale would have moved into the likes of Longford Villas when they were built-the year again I'm not sure of.
I do remember when I was young my granny talking about her mother and what she had said - moving into houses with real floors--

Grammer,

My great grandfather was still living in one of the cottages when he died in 1915. I'd say he was on his own then as all the family had married and that is the address the graveyard gave me for him. I got him there in 1901 and 1911 census -roll on the 1926 census, that will tell a few tales I hope. I checked out a few others living in the 10 cottages and some of them were potters and I'd say worked in the Potteries on Pottery road.

Talking of creating family dynasties made me think today about this man......born in 1850 in Liverpool ...son of a mariner ....settled in Avondale in 1870's and married twice...his dynasty spreads from Ireland through England to U.S.A , Australia and Chile...thousands of happy families all thanks to him. I started a family search as I was so fascinated that this uneducated labourer started this dynasty of amazingly diverse people.... scholars, writers, dancers, horsewomen and chatterboxes all owe him gratitude.

Just to freshen up and return to this topic.
I was talking to a guy who says his parents had a flat in Woodpark house(before it became The Noggin Inn)
=======================================
Another source of old info -says Avondale cottages ran from the Noggin Inn up to the priest's field??????
never heard the term "Priest's field".

I was never able to find out anything about that Woodpark House. My gt Grandfather lived in the cottages and we only had snippets of stories from my granny but, one thing she related was at one time he was a coachman in the big house...wonder if that was Woodpark House. I never found out if those cottages were tied in with the house? maybe you would get the cottage if you worked at the house? though my man also worked for a time platelaying on the railways and as a gardner/labourer.

Never heard of the priest's field.
This is the earliest map I could find on OSI and to the left of the cottages there is a Brick Field...pan around.

On rootschat recently someone was looking for a graveyard in Sallynoggin...maybe way back there was a priests field and graveyard there ????

Haha we all "heard" something. I read that Honeypark used to be a graveyard and it's haunted. Apparently there's a ghost in this photo of it???

That's correct Grammer four and five bedroomed houses and the next lot are to be called the Cedar.

Regarding Woodpark house I knew I had read it was once a private school, Brian Smith in the Dun laoghaire's historical society journal writes
Woodpark house was for a short number of years up to 1924 a boarding school and a day school for boys and girls called St Brendans a mr Frances Stephens was the Principal

The ruins of Avondale House once stood on the crest of the hill on Avondale Road, Killiney. Roughly where a bungalow called 'Arkle' stands now. Used to play there as a kid.
