Thatched Cottage

    Newer Older

    Fox's Lane, Raheny, Dublin, Ireland.

    In his history of Raheny parish, Arthur Garrett refers to the cottage:

    ... in the closing years of the last [19th] century it was one of a group of nine. At the time a local landlord decided to demolish all of these, but a family by the name of Cronin who lived in this remaining one, approached Parnell for advice. He told them to take the matter to court where they rceived a judgment in their favour, and the cottage was allowed to stand.

    And don't forget that, before the transfer of the mailboat to Howth in the early 19th century, Fox's lane was part of the main Howth Road.
