Located on Griffith Avenue, St Vincent de Paul Parish Church in Marino is part of the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin. The Church was completed in 1928 on the old Charlemont estate.
Marion is an area of Dublin that I have yet to explore in detail.
Marino is an inner suburb on the Northside of Dublin, Ireland. It was built, in a planned form, on former grounds of Marino House, in an area between Drumcondra, Donnycarney, Clontarf, and what became Fairview. The initial development featured around 1,300 concrete-built houses.
The design of the new Marino development was heavily influenced by the Garden City Movement, which originated in the United Kingdom with Sir Ebeneezer Howard. Howard’s idea came from 19th century writings which inspired him to build the opposite of the general urban conditions that existed at the time, hence building the “Garden City”, to be “a perfect combination of rural and urban living”. His book, To-morrow, a Peaceful Path to Real Reform (1898), was reprinted in 1902 titled Garden Cities of Tomorrow.
