A PUB IN THE VILLAGE OF WINDY ARBOUR
When I first photographed this back in August 2020 a gentleman objected to me photographing the building but he was unwilling to offer any identity or explain what his interest was. He was the second person in the same area to object to my activity on that particular day.
Windy Arbour is a small suburban village in the Dundrum area of Dublin, Ireland. Situated between Dundrum and Milltown, along the banks of the Slang River. Windy Arbour is surrounded by several housing estates, including Columbanus. At the centre of Windy Arbour is the smaller and much older town-land of Farranboley, which appears on maps dating from the 18th century.
Perhaps the most famous person to live in Windy Arbour was Irish patriot Robert Emmet, who grew up in The Casino, a manor house that is now known as Emmet House, where the Secretariat of Secondary schools in Ireland is currently housed. It is located next to the Catholic church on Bird Avenue and was formerly known as Carton House.
