CLONLIFFE GARDENS DRUMCONDRA
Connecting Distillery Road to Clonliffe Road.
When I was young I kept adding “e” to words but now I am doing the opposite … I have just noticed that I have managed to write Clonliffe as Clonliff in a number of posts over the last few days. I have seen the Clonliff elsewhere but it would appear that Clonliffe is the current spelling.
Clonliffe is an area of North Dublin between Ballybough and Drumcondra.
Clonliffe Road is the wide linking thoroughfare nearly a mile long forming the central artery. There is an entrance at the Drumcondra end, to Holy Cross College, and to the grounds of the residence of the Archbishop of Dublin.
The main access to Croke Park GAA sports ground is from Jones Road, the principal turn off on the south side of Clonliffe Road.
