Beechmount bungalows

Hello Joe, its mickey from Canada. Beechmount bungalows were also known as the prefabs,because they were prefabricated asbestos and white rock bungalows were made out of aluminum,did you find out anymore info on milltown row school that used to be a stepping stone before you went to St.Thomas?

Re: Beechmount bungalows

Hiya Mickey, yep your right some called them the Prefabs..as regards your query , I will mention it here now and see if we get any reponse...
Does anyone remember in the late 1950's early 1960's when the old St Pat's Boys home at Milltown closed and the boys were moved to the new home up the Glen Road their old building at Milltown became temporary class rooms for the older boys of nearby St Kevin's Primary School.?
