Cabinteely

Postby Rocker » Sat Mar 07, 2015 1:46 pm

In recognition of the Cabinteely Football Club I though it is about time we started a Topic on Cabinteely.

This morning at 10.00hrs I was driving to Dunnes and on the main road just at the Cabinteely turn off there were two ladies in Yellow High Vis vests cleaning and taking up litter and tending the daffodils. Fair play to you girls. The place does not look so good without a lot of work and I for one as a passing motorist was delighted.

wuu wuu Keep up the good work Cabinteely.

Carrickmines / Cabinteely / Lehaunstown are well known locally for ancient artifacts ...... there is a Dolmen in the grounds of a house on Brennanstown Road http://www.shadowsandstone.com/Ancient-Ireland/Dolmens-Portal-Tombs/Glendruid-Brennanstown-Dolmen/.

Having a half hour to kill one day last week I went into the Library
on Anglesea Road and to my delight found a booklet Memories
of Lehaunstown Races! When I was in The Tech that was a great
day out. It was an enjoyable read.

Yes it was Sinead ! I remember it well, the crowds walking up from Cabinteely to the races, the men drinking bottles of Stout and eating ham and cheese sangers !! then waiting outside the Horse and Hound for hours waiting for the adults to finish their drinks, put me off fizzy orange for life !! then the walk home with them all singing songs and telling yarns, loved it !

Do you know Spud, I had never heard of it until Toss posted that. It must have been a great place to play, something like the rockies in newtown Park opposite my Uncle's house.

you're some Buchail Bo ! how many indians did ya kill before you legged it down under ? :lol:

As for the bomb shelter ..... I have my doubts about that definition, maybe Darby O'Gill's mates were going in there ;) how old is it ? was the Luftwaffe around then ? it looks more like a version of Prince Ruperts Tower* to me :lol:

*Ruperts Tower was a small holding cell in Liverpool for local drunks and offenders to spend the night in before they were transferred to the court cells for a date in the dock.

edit - Ok I looked this up and there's little info, with nothing to explain the plans at the time of them being built but it does appear that they were bomb shelters if DLRCC are to be believed.
