Doing some genealogical research and came across this address


around 1924

Anyone any information? Can't see it on any maps, so suspect it was a house name somewhere.

Re: Internet / Broadband

Re Vodafone and dropouts, what should I be looking for in the logs?
I get the same problems, where the internet will just stop for 3 or 4 minutes, usually when watching Amazon or Netflix, and then having to reload and scroll to the last watched bit.

Re: Rogerstown Park - opening May apparently

Is it not on the Lusk/Rush pennisula rather than the Donabate peninsula?

Still a welcome amenity for Fingal where ever it is.

Re: Eir TV and broadband

Had Eir TV & BB for a few weeks 2 years ago, BB was fine but TV would pixelate at times making it unwatchable. Went back to Sky TV and BB but now have Sky TV and Eir BB works fine for us as Mrs Blowin gets her rugby I get 85MBs

Re: Young man abandoned on main road to Lusk

When contacting the ES did you say he was drunk or just there was a guy unconcious in the middle of the road, IMO you would probably get a better ES response if the intonation was that he'd been in an RTA and left on the road as an untrained person you would be quite within your rights to have gone ...

No silly, it's an IC3 Duck. Not all people would be familier with IC descriptions though so perhaps Afro Carribean should be just as acceptable IC1 White - North European IC2 Mediterranean - South European IC3 Afro-Caribbean IC4 Asian (in the UK Asian refers to people from the Indian subcontinent li...

Re: Embarrassed to be from Donabate

Were you just sitting there in the car, with park anywhere lights on? If so then that would probably explain people likely thinking you were picking up Mr.Lady from a session at the bookies. If you've broken down, it's always best IMO to lift the bonnet and stare blankly at the engine, you get more ...
