Dollyer

Wednesday, 29 March, 2017

Dollymount, known as “Dollyer” to Dubliners, is an area on the north coast of Dublin Bay. A wooden bridge from Clontarf links to Bull Island and the adjoining 5-kilometres long stretch of sandy beach and dunes is called Dollymount Strand.

Note: “Dollymount House” was listed in the Dublin Directory up to 1836, and in 1838 Dollymount appeared for the first time as that of a district, under the heading of “Green Lanes, Dollymount.” It is said locally that the name was used by a member of the Vernon family as a compliment to his wife, Dorothy, or Dolly Vernon.
