This publication features some men and women who have lived in Raheny at various times and who have, by their achievements, locally and nationally, truly left their 'Footprints in the Sands of Time'. About Raheny: Raheny is a modern suburb on the northside of Dublin City, close to the sea and a short commuter distance to the city centre. Formerly it was a compact rural village, surrounded by private estates, small farms and labourers' cottages. It remained largely unchanged until the spread of Dublin City began in the 1950s when new housing estates crept over the green countryside, with schools, churches and shops built to cater for the growing population. However, with its remaining eighteenth and nineteenth century houses, churches and railway station, it still retains its village atmosphere more than many suburbs of Dublin City. Raheny as depicted in the cover in 1853 was a rural village on the north side of Dublin Bay. Today it is a busy modern suburb of Dublin City, yet fortunately it has preserved many of its original and historical buildings. Front Cover Village of Raheny, 1853. View is taken from Watermill Road, showing the bridge over the Santry River and the rath on which most of the village was built. The double bell turret of the old St. Assam's Church in the graveyard can be seen on top of the rath. Painting by Edward McFarland. Courtesy of the National Library of Ireland. Reference 1986 TX (9).
