Great info there Fitzer....very informative indee

The year is 1729. An Act of Parliament in this year established Ireland’s first turnpike or toll road. It went from James’ Street through Kilmainham and Inchicore, past the Cow and Calf Inn to Kilcullen, County Kildare.
Perhaps the most famous pupil, from Phoenix Street, was the poet Thomas Kinsella, born in 1928, who received his Primary Education at “The Model” from 1932 until 1940. Mr. Kinsella is especially noted for his translation of the Irish epic, the “TŠin”, or “Cattle Raid of Cooley”, the oldest Epic Tale in Western Europe.
Often wondered why me Great Great Granda made his way from Kilcullen to Dublin....it was obviously for work....but never knew about the road.....I suppose get on it and keep walkin....eventually yer there.

The folks from Kilcullen lived at a place called Air Mount near the Jail, and later in Abercorn Tcr...where Peadar Doyle (future Lord Mayor 1941–43 and from 1945–46, lodged with them and met his future wife my Grand aunt Kathleen.......later one of the sons (me Granda) met a girl from Phoenix Street (The Ranch) they married and moved into a house in the Ranch, not far from her parents place where she grew up, and were neighbours of Kinsella......my Da grew up in the Ranch until they moved to two address in turn in Ring Street, then to Nash Street and finally to No 2 Ring Terrace....where the last was to leave in the mid 70's.

All had worked in the CIE Works. All had attended the Model School.....all have sung in the church choir, with one being head organist for over 26 years. All played football, with my Da, playing for Inchicore, St Pat's and the Nugget Boot Polish Company. They played down by the liffey, in the Ranch, and the da told me they always had a lad on standby in swimming togs to go get the ball when it went into the River.

Another was in F Coy Irish Volunteers with Peadar, Con and Michael M....On one Tan raid they hid down a sewer and the metal cover was replaced, until the coast was clear. They trained in the Brickworks.

Con Colberts bayonet was given to the Granda as a keepsake before he went to the firing squad, it's still in the family to this day.

A lifetimes work and a must have for any Inchicoreite interested in the history of. The book is now out of print but copies can be fornd on Amazon Books for around £50 as it's now a collectors item.

Some of the front row is the 1st class, 1969. I should be in it but can't quite be sure if I'm there! Some of the names are; Mark Daly (dickie bow), Pat Kinsella, Christy (Git) O Toole. Robbie Burns, David (Chicken) Stewart, Jerome Hurley, Dickie O Donoghue, Alan Fagan and Lar Duffy.

Just saw this post Fitzer....last time I was home, met up with Seosamh and we took a history walk around Inchicore, at the end of it I dropped into Boles and asked if I could take a pic of the shop.....Mr B said OK but didn't stay to be in the pic.... but someone else got him in the past....the shop is like a timewharp inside, not a lot has changed since the 30's at least.

S signed the copy of the book I have for a cousin of mine a long time ago, he gave it to my Da who passed it onto me before he died....a great read.

Think I started in the Oblates 1959 and left in 1967 or 68. I had Mr McKnight most of my time there. Had Joey sometimes always had me singing a tune called Sweet Afton.

I had Joey in 75/6. Sweet Afton was a song I remember well from class. He used to send us to the factories behind Jamestown Rd looking for round wooden wheels for an invention he was working on.
