Drumcondra

Drumcondra (Irish: Droim Conrach) is a residential area on the Northside of Dublin, Ireland.

It is famous as the birthplace and residence of Taoiseach Bertie Ahern TD, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Ireland. It is the site of the palace of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin and three colleges are located here: All Hallows College, Mater Dei Institute of Education and St Patrick's College of Education. All three of these colleges are associated with the Irish Roman Catholic Church and Dublin City University.

One of the sights of Dublin may well be Croke Park. Home of one of the largest sports stadiums in Europe and headquarters to the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) it houses a museum about the national sport of Ireland. Drumcondra is also the location of Tolka Park, the home of Shelbourne F.C..

Griffith Avenue, which runs through Drumcondra and Marino, is the longest tree lined Avenue in the Northern Hemisphere with no retail outlets. The Avenue spans 3 electoral constituencies and is home to business tycoons McVeigh, Gillespie and Zammitt as well as former U2 member Mark McDermott.

It is served by Drumcondra railway station, on the main Drumcondra road.

The Cat and Cage Pub on the Drumcondra Road was the site of an old postal stop and the point at which rebels, during the 1798 rebellion, seized a postal cart in order to signal to others in north Co. Dublin to revolt. Incidentally, the Cat and Cage is located at the corner of Church Avenue, the street where Bertie Ahern was reared.
