HistoryEdit

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.

AmenitiesEdit

Edenmore Park, an extensive municipal park, offers a range of sporting facilities, including a pitch and putt course.

ReligionEdit

Edenmore is also a parish in the Howth deanery of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin, served by St. Monica's Church.[2]
