With it only being a 4 seater next time out in here they are saying it will only be another outing for Ivana cos Labour WONT get 2. I'm inclined to think like you and Ivana might appeal to the Doirt crowd more so than indecisive Emu so interesting times ahead. I'd call it
1 FF
1 FG
1 Lab
and 1 ? ................. I hope it's PBP but the electorate out there have their heads so far up their own asses the Greens might steal it again in transfers as they did in 2007.

Éire is the Irish name for the island of Ireland, Éireann is used in the Gaelic forms of the titles of companies and institutions in Ireland e.g. Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail), Dáil Éireann (Irish Parliament) or Poblacht na hÉireann (The Republic of Ireland).

Eire is a modern term evolved from the ancient Eriu meaning a Celtic Goddess.

Gang,

I have just written to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Council...all still on their Christmas break but the confidently assure me that they will be back by March 1st...The theme of my letter is to suggest that Marine Rd be renamed QUEENS RD.
I am assured they will look most favourably at this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Georges St will complement it well...Afer all they called a place in Cork after Prince Charles....Charleville !!!.
By the way, what happened to the 'old' Borough of Dun Laoghaire...all these fancy long names, and pray, where's Rathdown then ?

These two Courts are new names given by the developer who was a local builder. Going up Patrick's Street on the right there was a double row of cottages called Rogans Cottages. This small row was demolished to make way for a factory in the 1960's. Woodwork of some sort was carried on in the factory and it gave a lot of employment it its time.

Jordo,

That is interesting, the Kelly Bros built a large workshop in Dunedin Terrace area late 1950s next to Mountwood Flats..It later becamr a Post Office Telephones Depot, certainly until the 1970s. The Kellys relocated to upper end of Patrick St and produced house timber products..I think the Kellys and Vella Families were related too.

Jordo:

Rogans Cottages was a small cul de sac, Peter Mullen watch/clock repairer lived in one of the cottages, there were 8/10 cottages. Kelly Brothers bought the area from 'The Lords of the soil' aka Longford and DeVesci Estate and built their workshop, the facade of the cottages was kept for many years.

I think Kelly's Court was through the alleyway beside Bunty Soden's vegetable shop. Will have to think more about this.
