I over estimated the width of the Newcastle road at the Lucan Super Valu
which is were the '6 lanes' thing came in...
I'm a bogger and never lived in Lucan but visited it regularly growing up
until the 90's.
My father's family lived in the Lucan and West Dublin area when it was
a village out in the country but he left in the 60's to become a bogger.
I hadn't been on the Newcastle road for a longtime until 2014 when my Gran died.
so the last time I was there before that the Super Valu place was still on the
edge of the countryside in the 90's.
so to see how much it had changed was a surprise.
Newcastle used to be a small village back then.
this thread is going a bit off track -
I love a bit of digression
ahhh back when Lucan had a SuperQuinn & Quinnsworth.
the good aul days
