Edenmore was developed by Dublin Corporation in the early 1960s on two of Raheny's townlands, then largely empty. While it is part of Raheny and shown in addresses as Edenmore, Raheny, it has, with its own schools, small shopping centre, Roman Catholic church, health centre and football and boxing clubs, quite distinct identity.
Location and accessEdit
Edenmore is bordered by the Ayrfield part of Coolock across the Tonlegee Road to the north, Coolock proper to the north west, Harmonstown west, the core of Raheny to the south and south east, and Donaghmede and Kilbarrack to the north east and east.
Edenmore is serviced by the Dublin Bus routes, 27, 27A and 104. Raheny and Harmonstown DART stations are also both short walking distances away.
Edenmore Park, an extensive municipal park, offers a range of sporting facilities, including a pitch and putt course.
The Edenmore Community Development Project is based within Edenmore and adopts Community Development Principles as a means of working towards overall improvements for the area. Details of the work of the Project can be found at http://edenmore.blogspot.com.
Other Community Services operating within the area include:
- St Monicas Community Council
- St Monicas Information Shop
- Edenmore Drugs Intervention Team,
- Edenmore Drugs Outreach Team
- St Monicas Youth Centre, and
- Edenpark Health Centre.
74th Edenmore ScoutsEdit
Edenmore has a large scout troop consisting of beavers, cubs and scouts and founded by Chief Scout Colin Roden in 1984. The unit moved into a new den in January 2010, behind the Concord pub.
