Hi, I am doing a school project on the North Beach cottages and Iwas wondering if you have any information or images of St.Bridget’s park or Seaview cottages as I think these were the houses built by the council to house the people left homeless, or any extra information you have about this event. Thank you
Only what we have here. If you find anything new, let us know…
1910 – Thoms’ Directory lists the occupants of the homes on ‘Sea Beach-road’. Where can I find this info please?
My great grandfather Frederick Strafford died in 1913 and his last address was ‘Wave Cottage, Greystones’. Any chance his was one of the homes along Sea-beach road?
All and any info appreciated!
Have emailed young Gary Acheson, the man who put the history together. Will let you know when he gets back to us…
Hello Paul, I am checking in to see if you heard back from young Gary Acheson. Thanks! Jo
Not a word. The man has gone off-radar for about two years now…
Great photos, and a perfect day to be viewing them with the storm that’s in it… also my dad Michael Kinsella and his family were born there… my dad was 5 when the storm hit and he remembered it well and told us all stories of the night it happened and having to carry belongings from the house across the fields being charged for each load carried over the land.
Today is my dads anniversary of his death so even more trips down memory lane…
Gary is to be congratulated on the superb restoration of the photo of the houses along the North beach, and for revealing the actual ‘dipping tank. What can be seen also is the beginning of the new embankment cutting out from the new rail line from the big tunnel to meet the original embankment at the back of the Bawn. The cottages in the Bawn, incidentally, predated all the other houses by decades.
Thanks for that, Jago.
I actually did the photo restorations here at GG – Gary provided all the smarts and historical know-how. As usual…
Have a sweet Christmas!
Hello I live in the Bawn and would love to know some of the history. When were the cottages built?
Do you have any photos of the houses in the 20’s 30’s?
From Jago Hayden this morning…
I don’t know when the Bawn was built, but it predated the other houses on the north beach, including the three two storey houses that escaped the wash out, and the Lifeboat house and almost certainly, Kenmare Terrace. It was either shaped by the railway, or maybe even shaped it.
Are these cottages the bawn?
No the Bawn is still there entrance at arch.
These Photos of the houses on the north beach are fantastic,thank you for that . My Grandparents lived there and my mother was born there I just remember her telling us all about the houses and the storm.
