St Annes Park, Raheny

Was this park ever called Horse Park?
Ive googled Horse Park Raheny which is on an old death cert but all that comes up is St Annes Pk
I know that it had a lot of horse chestnuts - maybe thats where Horse Pk comes from but I cant figure out why it would be given as an address - there is no mention of a gate keeper on cert

The house St. Annes was well-established under that name in the 1830's, the GRO started in the 1860's, so it is unlikely that any other name would have been used on a death cert. Prior to the 1830's the area was known as St Annes due to the well. The OP is either misreading the address or has not located a 'Horse Park' . The address could be checked in Thoms if the year was given.
