A Community for Modern Families
Imagine that you could create the perfect family-friendly village from scratch. A village with a true sense of community and heritage, yet at the same time utterly modern.
A village with its own excellent schools, including a Gaelscoil, an Educate Together national school and four other primary schools, as well as two secondary schools: Temple Carraig (under the patronage of Educated Together) and St. David's, with others easily reachable by DART.
A village with all the sporting facilities one could wish for, from soccer, rugby and GAA, to tennis, sailing and every watersport imaginable.
You would probably start by choosing a picturesque location, somewhere on the coast with salty air, clear water and great walks to invigorate local residents (and their dogs) on a daily basis.
You might encircle the village with a hinterland ideally suited to hill-walking and horse-riding, and you might throw in one or three fine golf courses (Charlesland, Greystones and Delgany), while you were at it.
And once you had created this sure foundation, you would have to think of a name for this wonderful village, this piece of heaven on earth.
And you might call it Greystones.
