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

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.

Since it first opened it has been a great eatery. Melvyn prepares good
food at reasonable prices.

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/

Tonight Dalkey Community First Responders gave an instruction /demonstration on CPR and the use of an AED to members of the public in the Eagle House it was great to see so many people getting involved and learning how to do CPR
