Thats right Erin, clondalkin was dublin 18 & changed to Dublin 22 in the 80's. I know this through my friends in school talking about it & my late Dad who was a postman. He was always full of info about postcode changes in Dub.

Tallaght, Clondalkin & other areas like that are Southwest Dublin. Maybe the mods can amend the forum records to reflect this.

Any chance North Co Dublin or Fingal could have its own section when the forum boundary for Clondalkin is decided.

Its a substantial area of Dublin to be lumped in with the rest of Dublin County. Ta

I think The El Morocco was another name used. Anybody know of any more?
The Parish Priest in the photo with the kids was Monsignor O Regan, so I imagine the picture dates to the mid 60s, if that's of any help
I went to school in Clondalkin in the 60's. I remember all those places and the Monsignor!

Mary Brigid,
I was in Miss Clifford's class from 1960 to1961(Second Class). She was lovely. I heard afterwards from another teacher, Miss Cusack, that she and her husband had emigrated to Australia.
