Vincent Delany, is a historian and retired architect, and he will describe aspects of the development of Knocksinna, the cul-de-sac of Modernist houses which is located on high ground over Blackrock in South County Dublin. The road was developed in the 1930s on land belonging to Knocksenna House. At that time, most Dubliners were conservative in outlook and did not want to stand out from the crowd.

Vincent will describe some of the early residents many of whom were not Irish born, and many of whom were ‘nouveau’ industrialists. All of the residents were entrepreneurs and decision -makers in the evolving Irish Free State.
