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!

His website can be found at www.photopol.com and the presentation on Ballybrack at www.photopol.com/dca

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

Another interesting part was the Google maps which shows where those “notable” people such as Michael Davitt and Sean Lemass lived.

And just to give you an appetite for more… here’s an old picture of The Ramblers Rest pub in Ballybrack village – 1950….
