Woodpark,

Any idea when it was demolished ? I remember when behind the Church was just green fields. Not sure if I recall the house. Found a Glenageary Hall on google, not sure if it's the place you had in mind.

I'll be talking with my sister on Saturday who might know something and will let you know if I find anything out.

sounds like Glenageary Hall. Grammer might find something about it in the local library.

One of the entrances to Glenageary House was through Glenageary Lodge which was at the top of Sallynoggin Hill and was occupied by a family named Madden.A gent called Blacker Douglas was the owner of Glenageary House and surrounding lands.There were 3 or 4 cottages around the house in which his farm employees lived.The Tower of the house had windows all the way round where his fields and workers could be observed. A bell was rung in the evening for finishing time,later Beltons took over the fields but not the house.Hope this is of some help to you.

Do you remember the fields of wheat its seemed like miles and miles when we were kids running through Beltons fields and on up to the ruins in Muldoons fields. We used to pick blackberries by the bucket load and play cowboys and indians in the ruins of Avondale House.Your right the good old days were great fun.

Hi lads found a copy of Irish Housewife dated 1950 in a box and looking through it I found an article on houseing in Sallynoggin aperantly it was the blueprint for community houseing back then .
The article was about trying to get people to stay in the country and not to come into he city so Sallynoggin was thought tobe country always said they were coulchies ( Grammer) and they went on to say that with better planning people would stay in their own area.

That cul de sac was where Kellys lived Ann, Marie, and Tommy, Ann lives in Eden Villas now married to Pat Perry from Blackrock
My Brother in law Tony Hennessy lived around the corner next door to Tony Doheney and the Hobsons lived facing Wynns coal yard all on O Rourkes Park which was named after the counceller who had a Chemist shop on Upper Georges St beside Walters .
By coincidedance I met Ann Perry ( Kelly) a couple of weeks ago in Carrickmines when a lad came over to me and said hello as I had driven him when he played for St Joes but never realised that Ann was the lads mother until later in the same shop, I had not seen her for twenty years
Our gang all danced in the Parocial Hall wher we had alittle corner to our selves.

I,ve put this picture in here, I,ll wager just about all the men in the pic are from tthe Noggin. My father is the goalkeeper so I,ll guess the era as around the early 30,s. Somebody put an "x" over a lad lower down and thats Paddy Belton who was a lifelong friend of my dad,s. Poor Paddy fell through a glass roof some years later and ended up on his back in a sanitorium for about a year causing him to have a hump on his back. This didnt stop his sense of humour, he was a very witty man. He was born within a few months of the dad and died a few months after him. Dont know many others in the pic but I was told maybe one of them was a Carroll and if I,m not mistaken, a man called "Rasher" Turner was supposed to be a great player so I wouldnt be surprised if he were there also. Its a pity the name on the football isnt clear, I,m fairly sure they were called Saint Kevins Boys and were supposed to have a fantastic record.
