An amazing chap Michael Collins of a Dalkey family (whom I have known all his life) has completed 30 marathons in 30 days
a 600 mile run in Canada to commemorate the journey undertaken by Irish Famine immigrants as the travelled from Grosse I'le to Toronto following the route of the St.Lawrence River.Almost 13,000 thousand Famine vicitms died there.

See the details in this Irish Times article

http://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-styl ... -1.2663269

The Irish living abroad are doing so much to keep our history alive. Michael is an amazing writer, ultra runner and sound man! wuu wuu wuu

I have always thought of the Guinea Pig Restaurant in Dalkey as very posh and out of my league. Since I retired I often take the DART to Dalkey and meet friends in the Club for lunch. On the way back to the station I have started to stop and read the menu outside the Guinea Pig. It sounds great and very affordable with an Early Bird special.

Then the clincher my cousin gave us a present of a voucher and tonight we went.

Well, I don't know why we stayed away so long. The restaurant is small and cosy in a very homely style...nothing pretentious. The food was just great ...go the extra and get the garlic potatoes...desserts were to die for ...
I could not recommend it highly enough.We went at 5.30p.m and there was a good buzz, locals and some tourists. The second sitters usually arrive at 7.30p.m so there was a steady trickle in and out. Big plus only 40 steps to the DART. We will be back!! wuu wuu

I agree, great spot, good food, reasonable prices and close to the Dart. What more could you want.

I was in Dalkey tonight and just noticed a defibrillator outside Ouzos Restaurant. When I made further enquiries I found out it has been there for over a year and is looked after by Dalkey First Responders.What a great idea. Well done to all concerned. The First Responders also give courses in CPR. Another brilliant idea.

Here is an old post from 2014 giving a bit of background to the First Responders http://irishredcrossblog.ie/2014/05/dal ... community/

I'm from that generation who always had "their place to go" in a town and for years when I went to Dalkey I only went to the one place. Yesterday I read in the Southside of a pub which had been done up and the write up sounded fantastic. Off I went to look at their website..It was McDonoughs Pub as you swept into Dalkey now it is called the Dalkey Duck. The thing that caught my eye was the two courses for €20 and all wines half price from Tuesday to Thursday from 17.00 to 20.00 with the meal. I don't know the price of the wine! but even a good glass at half price would wash down the €20 meal and I like to be out and back before the places get too busy.

For music lovers the bar sounds good.

Found this on Dalkey Community Council Newsletter.

DO YOU KNOW that a Marine Spatial Plan for Ireland is being developed by the Government through the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government? This Plan has huge implications for the future of Ireland’s east coast, yet very few coastal communities appear to be aware of its existence. The Marine Spatial Plan, required under EU legislation, will determine the future of Ireland’s coastal waters and will lay out a framework for how our seas may be used. This clearly has widespread implications for the conservation of the Ireland’s wonderful coastline, its natural beauty, ecology and marine wildlife. The general public don’t know what Marine Spatial Planning means and the Government’s attempts to inform and involve communities in this initiative have been totally inadequate. The Department’s web site states “Marine spatial planning involves stakeholders in a transparent way in the planning of maritime activities. … throughout the process there will be a strong focus on public engagement, including a number of formal public consultation processes and environmental assessments”. The poor publicity to date leads one to question this statement. A public meeting (notice above) took place in Dun Laoghaire on July 5th. Dalkey Community Council received no notification of this. Only 27 people attended. The majority of these were not members of the general public. The waters of Ireland belong to the people of Ireland, but it appears that a small number of private individuals are having undue influence. For example, plans are in the pipeline to develop five major wind farms with a total of over 800 huge turbines close to shore between Dundalk Bay and Wicklow. Of these, 145 turbines are proposed for the Kish and Bray sandbanks off Dalkey, Killiney Bay and Bray Head and at least a further 420 have been permitted on the Codling and Arklow Banks off Wicklow. Dalkey Community Council is very concerned about the absence of a genuine effort by government to involve local communities in determining the future of their coastal waters. Wildlife and coastal landscapes are key marine resources valued and protected throughout the EU. A document ‘Towards a Marine Spatial Plan for Ireland – a roadmap for the development of Ireland’s first marine spatial plan’ is available to download from the Department’s website. We urge you to take an interest by putting your name on the official mailing list (msp@housing.gov.ie)and by contacting your local councillor and TD to ask for their views and to ensure that they are seeking and representing the views of local communities. You can contact the Community Council on this matter at: enquire@dalkeycommunitycouncil.com

Never heard anything about this until I read your post. Usually the business community in Dun Laoghaire would have notices up about matters such as this.

Probably too much detail but here is an up to date report from the Irish government.

Little lighter for us to read here from the Times.

Jeez, there's devil in the detail all right. It's one thing erecting these turbines out at sea, but I doubt that placing 7 of them along the promenade at Newtownsmith is ever going to be accepted.
