A lot happening around the place. Just to let you know the shortcut behind the Church is blocked. Three or four houses going in here. I saw the foundations today and it looks like the houses will have no gardens because the foundation at the front facing in the bottom photo is right beside the path. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

Gosh Strum,

I've been looking at that as I drive by. They are digging out some hell of a hole! It will be a shame when the new buildings go up....the view of the mountains will be lost. I know we hadn't seen that view for years with the Deerhunter there but, it has been open and refreshing for the time that the site was cleared.

I hope the new development doesn't bring too much traffic. Yesterday we were on the slip road off the M50 trying to get across to the recycling at Ballyogan and it was back to back traffic coming from Cornelscourt and Leopardstown slip roads....where are all those people going at lunch time on a Saturday???
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

I think the Deerhunter site and it's works Rocker are going to be a boon for Sallynoggin and surrounding areas--Long overdue-
At long last someone to break the stranglehold of Tesco.

No harm for Tesco to get a kick in the ar%e I know if I was one of the long term staff I would have taken the recent redundancy offer with all this competition and Brexit, on another note I wonder what me poor aul father and mother would say if they came back and saw the site where their beloved Leinster's once stood :o

Great revenue for Deh Noggin this weekend, the international Box Cup, 800 fights over three days, the Chipper and Ice-cream shops make a killing, non-stop queues all day and evening.

So much for the RBB campaign to stop the 7 being re-routed, they did get a suspension but the bus stops are going in at the moment at D.S.P. School. I also see the ground marked out almost opposite the sorting office but they'd hardly put a stop right before the lights at the roundabout would they? I believe every second bus will go through the normal route so that's not so bad.

Hard to believe how much is going on. For a number of years it was stagnant now its like a mad bull is chasing the developments. I've been to the Aldi (old White and Delahunt site) and it seems to be the usual fare. Now with Lidl on the Deerhunters site there will be great choice for shopping.

Irony is part of that site is an nursing home and I met an old codger tonight and he says in all seriousness "Must get me name down for the new nursing home".....Geez and he out and about not a bother on him.

I was going into Tescos at Honey park and couldn't get over the size of that development opposite.....I hadn't been around there for ages.

Unbelievable Rocker, I never thought I'd see the day when the quiet village of Sallynoggin would be bustling like it is now. I counted 9 cranes the other day, Lidl's one is gone now. Terrace of houses behind the church near completion, Holy Child School just had a mega makeover, looks great, six bus stops almost in on the sallyglen road and even the local shops haven't been affected by ALDI. Big annual clean-up by the estate management organised this Saturday. It's all go around here now. :D

Gosh, it is all positive for Sallynoggin. When my various relations moved there in the 50's it was so exciting. They had been in tiny inferior places in the Borough and to get houses in Sallynoggin was a great leap forward. We couldn't scrape together the necessary deposit or I would have returned to my roots!! instead I stayed a Rocker! It is now a new lease of life for this next generation of Sallynogginers. wuu wuu

Bummer Rocker, me and my partner at the time, 1988, looked at the house behind the gates opposite Woodies, it was advertised as the original Honey Park Dairy, that came up here before and I think it was false advertising. Anyway, doesn't matter, 12.000 quid, and we had no credit for a mortgage. Yep 12.000. :roll:

Sad morning in Sallynoggin this morning for the funeral of Navanman's friend Richie Byrne. Must have been a thousand there. Just shows the influence of one committed passionate man who inspired a nation with his ability and latterly his courage in tackling cancer. angel angel

A good compromise I reckon Rocker.

I see 10 houses to be built on Park Close behind the community centre as part of a Rebuilding Ireland for homeless scheme.

Michael, forget the red faces, all of us humans make mistakes, so long as we learn from them we are O.K.
I learn something new every day, maybe sometime I will learn to think before I speak!
