Welcome to
This is a new site given over entirely to collections of photographs that have been taken in the Finglas Area covering a period of over 70 years. I enclose albums of photographs of up to 100 photos per album (max) per event. I have endeavoured to organise the photos to show Finglas Life of today and of yesteryear. I have over the years been invited to take photographs of so many different events that were used for a short time after the event. I still have the pictures and so many have queried this resource and with the help of Dublin City Council I have put this collection online for all to see. (Tony Smullen)

Using this site:
We hope that these collections of photographs will provoke good memories and inspire conversations. We further hope that when you look through the photographs you will recongnise people and places, from events and ceremonies in the Finglas Area. We commit to updating this site regularly and would welcome your comments and indeed your photographs that we could put up in our gallery and include as part of this growing collection. We would be happy to host your collections of local photographs from any and all events, (though we couldn't guarantee publishing of all).
