Victoria/Ayesha/Manderley:aHouse and Home

Victoria Castle is situated on a rocky outcrop overlooking Killiney Bay, Co.


Dublin, as commanding and beautiful a site, according to the Dublin Penny
Journal of 1841, as could possibly be imagined. Probably designed by architect
Sandham Symes for Robert Warren, a property speculator who had made his
fortune by selling parcels of land to the then emerging railway, it sits alongside
Warrens other developments of Mount Eagle and Killiney Castle.
Failed speculation prompted the sale of Victoria Castle, and most of Warrens
other interests in Killiney, in 1870. Humphrey Lloyd, Provost of Trinity College,
acquired the house at the cost of 5,000, becoming the first of a succession of
owners over the next fifty years.
In the mid-1920s an unexplained and calamitous fire gutted the house. A
watercoloured dyeline elevation in the Irish Architectural Archive is evidence of
the buildings restoration in 1927-8, a project undertaken by its new owner, the
wealthy Sir Thomas Talbot Power of the whiskey dynasty. He availed of the
architectural services of Ralph Byrne of W. H. Byrne and Son, a prolific office
best known for its extensive ecclesiastical portfolio. The cost of the restoration
amounted to 5,540 and the works were completed in six months by contractor
G. and T. Crampton. A comparison of this elevation of the courtyard faade with
photographs of the castle prior to 1928 shows that while Byrne retained much of
the character of Symes castellated Dalkey-granite pile, he simplified its
appearance and modified its tower.
After the restoration, the house acquired a new name, Ayesha Castle, after H.
Rider Haggards sorceress, the original She-who-must-be-obeyed, who rises
from the flames in his popular 1887 novel She. It remains in private ownership,
and was renamed Manderley in 1997. Aisling Dunne, IAA

Sheep Thrills visit Mosney

This trip was planned for Sheep Thrills Community group to go to Mosney to meet Asylum
seekers and Immigrants to share our talents with them. For us to learn as they love to chat
and communicate.
After one befriending meeting when Linda, Rosie and Joan went to meet the organisers and
some asylum seekers, we were deeply influenced by the people we met and their needs.
Following this Rosie and Joan went back and met 15 people interested in knitting where we
helped them to get started with our wool and needles. We were very impressed by some
of the talent.
On the 9th March a group of 10 from Sheep Thrills visited Mosney to see what we could do
in any small way to help bring the project forward. We immediately could see how they
wanted to get on and Hanifia an Albanian woman (very talented) was particularly interested
in making rugs, Rosie kindly gave 3 looms for Hanifia, who was thrilled, we left her cones of
wool to start making rugs again.
Maurethe was very taken with the girl from Syria, a quick learner and lovely to work with,
Maurethe made lovely bags to give them so they could keep their wool and needles in.
Athene helped Isabel from Malawi who had good English, Miriam helped Muna from Syria
who had finished a scarf which she had started with Rosie and Joan previously. Sandra
helped Hanadi who could not wait to give us some of her homemade cake she had made
specially and Gillian helped Manushage who was particularly good at lace making. Everyone
else was chatting to the families and supporting where necessary.
All in all we had a very interesting experience on a beautiful sunny day. But to bring this
whole project further, the powers that be at the Mosney need to put in place a more
organised programme so that we can help more.
We all must realise that things move slowly at Mosney but also the families do move on
eventually. Its important for them to feel wanted and that we are interested in them.
We plan to have them to the Carry Centre at a suitable time so that we can share our hall
and our members talents with them. Thank you to all at Sheep thrills for making this happen.

John Sullivan
John (pictured) was a parishioner of Holy Trinity, Killiney in the 19th Century,
mid-life he converted to the Roman Catholic Church and eventually was
ordained a Jesuit priest. He died in 1933. In April 2016 Pope Francis approved a
decree that authenticated a miracle attributed to Fr Sullivan, thereby approving
his beatification. The beatification ceremony of Blessed John Sullivan elect will
take place on Saturday 13th May 2017 in St Francis Xaviers Church, Gardiner
Street, Dublin. We are proud of our connections to Blessed John Sullivan and
look forward to taking part in the celebrations of his life as the year progresses.
Confirmation
Sam Mitchell from Holy Trinity (see Registers on page 31) joined candidates
from St Pauls and St Matthias for a service of Confirmation in Glenageary on
Saturday 4th March. The Rector wishes to thank the Revd Gary Dowd for
preparing these young people and organising the service.

Crime Prevention

Or better still you and me, because were the ones the Garda Siochana are there
to deter, deny, and detect thieves and burglars from threatening our possessions
and property. If you werent at the public meeting in the Druids Chair on the
morning of March 11th you missed an interesting and important meeting with
Sergeant James Malone, our Crime Prevention Officer, who operates from Dun
Laoghaire.
Much of what he said we probably think we know already that not locking cars
and houses is a contributory factor in many successful raids, very often with no
damage done, and that anything at all that can be sold is liable to be taken.
Surprisingly perhaps a lot of us keep cash in our cars.
Burglary and theft can be targeted, opportunistic, or initiated by distraction.
Examples offered included a culprit drawing your attention to a tenner hes just
dropped just as youve put your card in the ATM; the guy with questionable
credentials or none at all who offers to do your gutters; the victim who thought
she had locked all her doors at a carpark beside a church not far from here,
except that one of them had been gently opened by a passer-by who came back
when she had gone off to shop.
The proportion of burglars re-offending after release is as high as 70%. They are
all too aware of the tell-tale signs no alarm, a build-up of post, skips in the
driveway too long.
Sergeant Malone is a busy man working and hes going to be even busier when
Cherrywood develops. But you and I can help him by taking a few simple
precautions taking photos of valuables is a good idea - and whenever we do
witness a crime by phoning 999 right away as the first step. And if youre not a
member of an App Community Watch Group in your area, you might like to
think about it if there is one, or start one yourself.
Our Crime Prevention Officer is contactable on james.b.malone@garda.ie . Our
local Garda station number is 6665000.
