Once again it was a treat to see another one of my previous articles being recycled for inclusion in the local Tallaght Echo newspaper as part of the weekly ‘Love Tallaght Outdoors’ series. Previous articles included have been Ballymount Castle and Colmcille’s Well. Its always a real buzz to see your work in print and this week was no exception. Featuring the former home of the famous Irish poet Katheryn Tynan. You can read the original artical from 2013 by flicking the following link, Tynan Hall.
The house which is now in ruin and in bad need of repair has a fantastic history with connections to fellow Irish writers and occultists W. B. Yeats and A.E. Russell whom Tynan was close friends with. It such as shame that the site is in such bad shape. The current land owners are the IRFU, whom have left the site to the elements. With the potential to transform this historic landmark and grounds into a parkland and tourist attraction its a crying shame that nobody is willing to do something with it. Perhaps with this renewed awareness something might happen?
