I came across a great website the other day while searching for information on the history of Ballybrack.
Pól Ó Duibhir has obvioulsy spent quite sometime putting together a Presentation on Ballybrack. Not only does it cover the notable and famous people that lived in the area in the past, it also includes a Millitary History of Killiney Bay from 1793 to 1815. Anyone that lives in the Ballybrack/Killiney area will find this presentation quite intriguing.
I hoping that Pól will present this again to the public at some stage, because I know I definitely won’t miss it!
One part I really liked was the Photo Tour of Ballybrack that has some historic comments on each photo – http://www.photopol.com/ballybrack_show/index.html
And just to give you an appetite for more… here’s an old picture of The Ramblers Rest pub in Ballybrack village – 1950….
