Centenary of the Killester Garden Village 1923-2023

Centenary of the Killester Garden Village 1923-2023

In August 1923 the first Irish WW1 ex-servicemen and their families moved into the new community of the Killester Garden Village.

These ‘Homes for Heroes’ were built from 1920-1923 consisting now of 289 ex-servicemen houses for these Irish veterans and their families after the Great War.

On Saturday 26th August the Killester WW1 Memorial Campaign in partnership with Dublin City Council will hope to offcially open the Killester Community Garden on the green in Abbeyfield in honour of the 289 Irish WW1 ex-servicemen who settled here.

It will also be in honour of the Killester men who died in WW2. This will be followed by a Community Centenary Celebration marking 100 years since the completion of the Killester Garden Village.
