A Bit of History

Inchicore used to be a marshland where sheep were grazed before being driven to market in Dublin city. Its name comes from the Irish Inse Chór, ‘Sheep Island’.

The arrival of the railway in the nineteenth century changed both the landscape and the fortunes of its inhabitants. Inchicore’s close proximity to Kingsbridge station (as Heuston was then called) and the city beyond, made it an ideal place for the Great Southern and Western Railway to build its works—which meant houses for workers, and infrastructure to support them. As the railway grew, so did Inchicore.

By the 20th century, Inchicore had become part of Dublin city proper. The village grew from its nucleus at the junction of Emmet Road and Tyrconnell Road and spread rapidly to its current boundaries between the Liffey and the Grand Canal. It is bordered to the east by Kilmainham, to the south by Drimnagh, and to the north and west by Ballyfermot and Cherry Orchard.
