    Chapel on left, ‘L’ shaped building was the Convent. Mount Jerome Cemetery stretches into the distance behind, look carefully and you can see the connecting gate between the Hospice and the Cemetery.

    Freemans Journal 13 April 1880

    this Institution, recently established under the care of the Sisters of Charity to meet a pressing need is in mainly intended for the dying poor, in whose name it claims support and sympathy. There Is a small portlon set apart for persons of the higher class.
    In Freeman's Journal of Monday 14 June 1880 there's notice of a charity sermon prached by the Very Reverend Michael Keane, D.D. in aid of the Hospice. The notice includes this text:
    With the greatest earnestness the Sisters of Charity charged with the management of the Hospice implore a great and generous response to the appeal now for the first time to be made in its behalf. The title it bears shows its object, but hardly reveals the need that exists for it. A peaceful deathbed - a happy death - these are the longed for, hoped for, prayed for objects of all true Christians; but how often does it happen that the wear and tear, the struggles and the strife of life continue till the last moment, ending only with life itself; and how often again do desolate and friendless souls faint with heart sickness in that hour for want of a word or deed of charity, kindness, strength, or comfort to help them on their weary way! It is to come to the aid of these and of many others, the Hospice has been established. It has but begun its work, yet so many crowd to its shelter that it already requires extension. May noble hearts give it that extension, and may the answer to the appeal be adequate to the need that prompts it. Benefactions will be most thankfully received by there follows a list of people and institutions

    There is a group dressed in dark clothes walking in the graveyard just beyond the wall (noted). Just been to a burial, perhaps?

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] NPA MOR2319 also Harold's Cross, has that complex, and I think the sign says Greenmount Boyne Linen Company, although the catalogue says Greenmount Oil Company

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/] Both were located on that site, according to the older maps, and my memory. The linen companies’s name changed over time. I see ‘Greenmount Oil Refinery’ signs on wall adjacent to their petrol station, note the large number of barrels (of oil?) at the rear Interesting to see an oil refinery in a Dublin suburb.Whitegate remains our only refinery. NORA supposedly maintains a strategic reserve en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_terminals_in_Ireland for which we pay an extra few pence/litre at the pumps. My oil delivery company source remembers delivering bulk oil to them back in the day.
