Was in UK - Missed the match and only got the score many hours later ( long story)
Those English who picked up on my Borough brogue were very generous in their comments.

Well we won but watching the first half I couldn't believe how poor both teams were. The 2nd half we were a lot better and deserved to win. It's the first time we've beaten Austria in over 50 years they say, so let's enjoy that. wuu

Enjoyed the soccer tonight. We managed to win so I'm delighted. Was surprised how poor the pitch was!! I do wish someone would teach our team the National Anthem it looks so much better to see teams sing with gusto....but, the Austrians (apart from two really Austrian looking lads) didn't seem to know their anthem either.

Big evening for the Canadians playing rugby against Ireland.

Nice touch the jersey to honour Anthony Foley from the Maori All Blacks before the Hacka.

You must remember that Killiney is D4 South, whilst Ballybrack is Wicklow north in RTE land :lol:

We will soon find out if Soldiers Field was a flash in the pan or the genuine sign of improvement that so many egg chasers believe it to be.

Killiney must be the largest growing parish in the country. Great to see the All Blacks in Ballybrack. Good match last night,there wasn't much between the teams. Major progress for us,6 Nations here we come.

There you have me, I am aware of the Barony of Killiney, the Urban District Council of Killiney but have never heard of the 'Civil Parish" what exactly is that. The word 'Parish' applies to the surround/area of a Church. Please tell me where I can see your definition for Kilbogget Park.

I found it on a few differnt links the other day and cant recall which one had the most info, but this mentions the civil parish part ...

https://www.townlands.ie/dublin/rathdown/killiney/kilbogget/

http://digdat.ajmorris.com/places?locnum=20970_kilbogget this link mentions 'poor law union' and I've read it explained as follows...

Under the Irish Poor Law Act of 1838, three "poor law commissioners" divided Ireland into poor law unions, in which paupers would receive poor relief paid for by a poor rate based on a "poor law valuation". The name "union" was retained from the English model although their boundaries were unrelated to those of the civil parishes. A union was named after the town on which it was centred, where its workhouse was located. Unions were defined as groups of poor law electoral divisions, in turn defined as groups of townlands. Electoral divisions returned members to the board of guardians, with voters who paid higher rates having more votes. During and after the Great Famine, boundaries in the impoverished west were redrawn to create more and smaller union for easier administration. When the Irish General Register Office was established in 1864, each union became a superintendent registrar's district, with groups of electoral divisions forming a dispensary or registrar's district. The Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898 divided administrative counties into urban and rural districts, with each rural district corresponding to the non-urban portion of a poor law union within the county. In the Irish Free State, poor law unions and rural districts were abolished in 1925 and the powers of boards of guardians transferred to the county councils' Board of Health. In Northern Ireland, poor law unions survived until the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Service in 1948.

Toss:

One of your links puts Kilbogget in the Barony of Rathdown rather than the Barony of Killiney. Loughlinstown and the Union were in the Barony of Killiney and under the rules of Killiney Urban District Council.

Strum, you are right to laugh, I have a MacBookAir and I am still getting used to it hence the error.
