Navanman,

I am intrigued by your photo of Bullock Castle... well worth the three hours it took to load. I am madly looking through google to see what that wall could be and the tunnel and then I found this lovely account of Bullock Harbour.. I hope Mrs Homan doesn't mind me putting it up here. It is a great tale,

Lovely memories.

My daughter has just been presented with a small booklet done by some of the elders in Dundee Scotland. It outlines their memories and includes photos.

The average age of the people involved in producing the booklet is 82 years of age (and the youngest is 72)

She says it is brilliant reading.

She drops into this site to see that her Da is behaving himself and not making a show of her ;) ;) and thinks that many of the people here could produce similiar stories.

Surely it would not be hard to put together - stories along the line of that just posted by Rocker.

Maybe the Historical Society has already produced it ??????

I would be more than willing to write my short memoirs

No comments about speed ramps please!

I would say it was for Prams/Wheelchairs.

Im thinking this might have been a common devise in all urban/commercial locations. And I base my case on the fact that this is a corner or street end. I'd say its to facilitate sack trucks, trollies & the like to move heavy loads from opposing pavements back in the days when this method of delivery was commonplace and lot sizes were a lot bigger (Barrels, Coal etc).

This is not a photo, but, I just heard that Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre is now reopened and is so interesting...shame on me :oops: I haven't visited but will.

Check out the website

Dalkey Castle

There is so much going on around the place that we miss.

Will Bryne who you have heard singing in the Club works there. I did the two hour tour about ten years ago and it was truly fascinating. Well worth the tenner at the time. Go for it Rocker. ;)

When I said I like early morning walks I did not mean that early. He must have got up at all hours to take that. Well done to him catching the first rays of the morning sun.

I believe they are going to have a ferry to (and fro I hope) the island.

This draft conservation plan for Dalkey Island is a great read...

Do you know I haven't been over to the Island since I was a child. Anyone been there since the place was done up???...if Jemser would only get back from Skeilig maybe he would venture out for us. How is the Dalkey Rowing Club going?? anyone other than William join???

Bugs that is a lovely little ditty...I feel like that about Blackrock. I came over the Vico Road today (it is now one way from killiney) and the day was so clear it was truly gorgeous then when I looked out at Sorrento Terrace i could see the Martello Tower and the Blue sea...i don't remember as perfect a picture...it is gas on a murky day it looks nothing like that.
I said Hello to Dalkey for you. hellllo ...I think I heard it roar back....Tell Bugs ...Hello hellllo hellllo
