    I played in, and around, this Cabin as a child. I was born in 1954, so I guess it became a playground for me around 1964, when I was getting more adventurous and roaming further afield. This was a substantial (for a child) walk outside the village of Clondalkin. It was beside, what we used to call, 'The Hump Backed Bridge'. I think it has been re-opened recently, though I am long departed.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/mutter_fluffer It certainly was a good distance! You'd probably not be allowed roam so freely as a 10 year old today. Too much to hope that you remember the gentleman above??

    I remember being chased away by an employee on more than one occasion. It could easily have been this fine gentleman.
