In a major feature in the Irish Independent’s Life & Homes section today, Friday June 19th, 2015, the national newspaper takes a look at our quiet little town – and, naturally enough, reckons it’s a place worth moving to.
As if you needed to be told that.
Pointing out its links to the city, the abundance of shops and services and the fact that we have no less than two beaches, the Indo reckons Greystones is ‘great for a young family’. It’s not too bad for old ones too, as a quick visit to Danns on a Friday night can prove.
On the tiny, tiny, tiny downside, the Indo does point out our resistance to change, the arrival of those high-falutin’ electric trains, the DART, once being a bone of contention round these parts. And now, apparently, it’s the harbour. Or Sisknobyl, as it’s better known amongst locals. Even though I just made that word up.
Still, with a population that’s grown from 10,000 in 1991 to 17,000 in 2011, there are plenty of individuals here, and most of them seem to relish in having their own opinion. Just look at Greystones Open Forum on Facebook – akin to Prime Time meets Fraggle Rock.
