I see that Strum, my Uncle's band were I believe just a Summer dance band, probably just on a Sunday for the Dubs train loads :lol: :lol: That tall man looks like he was a boatman, hence the shorter trouser legs for wading to push the boats out. I wonder did the Homan family own the premises then, and also the Tearooms where they had the dances and where Freddie stored the boats for the winter is not yet built in that photo. It was a grand spot, grieves me to see it nowadays.

I remember having very happy days there picnicking with our sandwiches and buying boiling water to make the tea. The tea and sambo's never tasted so good.

That's a great photo Rocker. You'd wonder how much business that kind of shop did. I mean, I can't see Enya popping up for twenty Major and a can of Brasso.

Ha Jw...I think that was what happened to Killiney...the clientel changed. There was a very laid back kind of life in the 30's and great neighbours to help.

Lucky enough to get an invite to the preview of the exhibition in the Druids Chair tonight (Friday). Really very good for the first effort of the residents. Some great photos and memorabilia. That photo of the tea rooms in the 30's was there!

That was very good. I saw a similar treatment of Booterstown/ Williamstown on Facebook. Now heres a question.

As Drone technology spreads into the hands of less sensitive folk, who decides whats fair game? Can someone float over someone's back patio and zoom in on what they are having for dinner and who the guests are? And what rights has a homeowner got to deflect this sort of attention hovering in his air space? Or what if a Drone malfunctions and tumbles down on someone's greenhouse - or pram? And how might the local scumbags exploit this technology?

Every so often I go back to this great site by Pol Ó Duibhir

This morning I read up on Decco's Cave. I knew nothing about this.

Brilliant Rocker, loved reading about the cave. I well remember it from
when I was a kid.
Delighted to see he refers to Katty Gollogher, and not the fancy name it
now bears.

In the early 20th century, White Rock Cave, Killiney/Dalkey (above) was the home of a mysterious hermit who slept in a hammock.

Some say that he was a veteran of the Boer War, others of the Great War; others that he was an eccentric member of the Kavanagh family who lived nearby at Retreat Cottage. But whatever his origin and history, the name by which he was popularly known as was ‘Decco’, and his cave as ‘Decco’s Cave’.

The cave was a great source of mystery to local children. He had a habit of chasing marauding infant intruders up the beach with an axe; perhaps this was where the other rumour, of White Rock Cave being the home of flesh-eating bandits, originated?

Nowadays Decco is long dead, you’re more likely to find cannabis than cannibals in White Rock Cave and the only mysterious hermit in the locality is Enya, who can afford a grander bolthole. :lol:
