Killiney in 1911
« on: Friday 14 January 22 15:06 GMT (UK) »
1911 was a good year in terms of the recording of people and events in the Killiney area. In the January 2022 featured article we present some of this source material which may be of interest to anyone researching their Killiney ancestors or those who have a general interest in the history of Killiney and its inhabitants. The topics include a transcript of Porter's Post Office Guide and Directory, the 1911 census of Killiney and the Royal visit of George V.

I read about the royal visits and the park. Queen Victoria's statue was still in the park when my dad visited while on holidays in 1930s. When was it removed?
