Re: Re: dun laoghaire queries
Passing through Dun Laoghaire the other day, I was a little sad to see that this terrace (of about 1850) has just been demolished. These pics were taken a few weeks ago when they were being readied for the chop.
I always knew they weren’t long for this world, being single-storied and being right beside the Town Hall and Dart Station – redevelopment pressure would get them sooner or later. They were quaint, with their cement-rendered backs right up against the street, and a high-up sash window. And the fronts facing into what would normally be a rear access lane. Remarkably, the whole terrace retained its original slate roof, brick chimneys and sash windows.
