A few more photos



Sorry that some of the photos need rotating. I uploaded them in the correct aspect but somehow they appear ar**ways. Perhaps some more technically minded person could sort them out.

Great photos. Recognised the ones in Sandymount. I saw some houses in Peck's Lane in Castleknock recently, which looked like old Council Houses. Thought that was odd considering the most of the houses around there looked very different and carry a very high price tag. Not so strange I suppose as Council houses were built in smaller numbers in, even in "posher" areas, and Castleknock would have been much more rural then. Interesting to know they were ex-servicemens houses. The diamond roof slates gave them away. Also, features like the exterior plaster-work, boundary walls/hedges, the window shape and location, etc.

You can still see them on Google Street view. They are on the right hand side as you go from the Castleknock Road towards the N3, and on two side roads. But mixed in with other houses. A lot of them have been modernised and extended since.

Thanks for all the knowledge

At the weekend, I spotted a plaque on houses in Macroom, Co Cork with the name and crest of The Irish Sailors & Soldiers Land Trust.

I hadn't heard of it previously but now know a bit more.

Those photos you posted up are great Jos. I would be interested in reading more, particularly re developments in Dublin & Wexford where relatives of mine lived in soldiers houses. Can you tell us where the ISSLT reports are available?

Hi KildareJohn,
Most of the records are in Kew, although some reports are held at TCD. If you like I can send you my article and you can have a look through the sources. I can send you on anything I have that might be of interest. Just drop me a PM with your email address and I will send it on.

The redbrick houses on Emmet Road in the centre of Inchicore village were British Army houses - I forget what regiment, but you can see the thistle-and-shamrock design still on their ironwork. I think they were for non-commissioned officers.

Jos's links as images (I hope):







Parsnips, try the Great War Forum (google it) - those guys are very nice and helpful. Was this your Richard Parsons? http://www.census.nationalarchives.i..._Street/21605/
