Baldoyle

Baldoyle (from Thom's Almanac and Official Directory, 1862: County Dublin Directory).

BALDOYLE, a maritime parish and village in Coolock barony, County Dublin; 7 miles N. E. from Dublin, comprising an area of 1,236 acres, of which 27 are in the village. Population of parish, 1,131; of village, 817, inhabiting 222 houses. It is situated upon a small creek of the Irish sea to the north of the isthmus that connects the promontory of Howth with the mainland, and close to the line of the Drogheda Railway, of which it is the third station from Dublin. In 1369 Sir William De Windsor, the then Lord Deputy, is said to have convened a Parliament here for the purpose of levying subsidies. The only public building is the Roman Catholic Chapel, a handsome structure with a portico of four Tuscan pillars, above which is a turret supporting a dome and cross. It has a Dispensary, Parochial and National Schools for children of both sexes, and is a Constabulary Police and Coast-guard Station. The creek is only fit for fishing wherries and boats, of which several belong to the place. In summer it is much frequented by sea bathers for the strength and purity of the water and its fine smooth beach. In 1166, the manor of Baldoyle was granted by Dermot Mac Murrough to the priory of All Saints, Dublin. At the Grange, which is close to the Railway, is the picturesque ruins of the ancient church.
