Whitehall, Co. Dublin

Whitehall is a Northside suburb of Dublin City, Ireland.

Whitehall is on the northern outskirts of Dublin's inner city, located on the N1 road leading to Dublin Airport, Swords and Belfast, between Santry and Drumcondra. North of Whitehall, the N1 becomes a motorway, the M1. The area is adjacent to the major public Beaumont Hospital and to Dublin City University on Collins Avenue.

Whitehall takes its name from a house named White Hall, formerly located to the south of the village on Drumcondra Road Upper. The area commonly known as Whitehall Cross, at the intersection of the Swords Road and Collins Avenue , is in the townland of Clonturk, and was formerly the site of a public house called The Thatch, whose memory is preserved in the name of a nearby road.

Whitehall College of Further Education is situated on the old site of Whitehall House. Whitehall College was originally named Whitehall House Secretarial School when it was established in 1970 but has since changed its name to Whitehall College of Further Education to reflects its provision of courses. Ms Ann O Reilly is Principal with Carol Bruce Vice Principal of the College and other notable staff members are Karel DeRaeymaeker, Irish Bridge champion and Shane Dalton former Dublin hurling and gaelic football player. Other most notable features in the area are Plunket College of Further Education, St. Aidan's Christian Brothers School , and the Holy Child Roman Catholic Church, a large redbrick church which is a well-known landmark to travellers on the N1. National sporting interests are represented by Whitehall Colmcille GAA club from which former All Ireland medal winners Tommy Drumm, Paul Clarke, Paddy Moran and Declan McGrath emanated from. The club is the largest juvenile sporting body in the community here providing Gaelic football, Hurling and Camogie to girls and boys from 4 yrs of age up to adult.The area also houses the home ground of prominent junior football club Home Farm F.C., and St Kevins, the schoolboy club for which Liam Brady, Ian Harte, Stephen Carr and Damien Duff played. Whitehall is also the site for one of the interchanges for the Dublin Port Tunnel with the M1. Dubliners band member Luke Kelly also lived in Whitehall and there is a stone in the area dedicated to him. See also[edit source | edit] List of towns in the Republic of Ireland
