People’s Park: Open House 2014
22 Oct 2014

Fionnuala Hayes conducted 10 tours of the newly opened Pavilion in People’s Park, Dun Laoghaire as part of this year’s Open House initiative. The tours were very well attended –  up to 30 people for each tour, which was quite a lot for a former park shelter, soon to be Fallon & Byrne restaurant. There was great interest from people of all ages – some of whom played in the park as children as much as 70 years ago and remembered a very different place. The park lodge is scheduled to be finished in the coming months, and will contain a location for art projects with children –  this little Lodge was previously home to the Park Keeper and his family, at one time a family of 8 children was reared here.
