South Dublin Libraries and Paddy Healy gave me authorisation to use Archeology, Early Christain Remains and Local Histories, Chapter 10, by Patrick Healy for my Rathfarnham article.

Pubs[edit]

The recent batch of changes to the pubs inserts an awful lot of WP:POV and strange statements like "local pub full of local people" (presumably a League of Gentlemen joke, and inappropriate in an encyclopedia). It also inserts numerous self-links to this same article, which results in a bunch of bolded words that look ugly. So I've removed them. Also, a lot of the info that has been reinserted is very repetitive and mentioned elsewhere in the article, or would be better mentioned elsewhere. -Splash 16:32, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

I find this whole section on pubs rather unencyclopeadic. It looks as if it would be more appropriate in a travel guide like Wikitravel than in Wikipedia. I can see that references to individual pubs may ocassionally be appropriate for Wikipedia, for example where the pub is of particular historic or architectural significance, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I suggest that we remove this section altogether. -- Chris j wood 13:03, 8 September 2005 (UTC)
Yes, that is at least in part because someone keeps on putting in things that just don't belong like mentions of plasma screen tvs and the like. When I originally merged them here from separate articles I kept it very brief but that hasn't stuck. Personally, I wouldn't object to the removal of the whole section as you say. It belongs better in Wikitravel. -Splash 13:41, 8 September 2005 (UTC)
I agree that the whole section could do with being deleted. However, I wrote the original article on the Yellow House which currently redirects here. I believe that the Yellow House Pub (unlike the others listed) is a notable landmark in its own right with enough history that its original article should be reinstated if the pub section is removed from here.

Yes, some sort of balance would be sensible. Perhaps a merciless editing of that section rather than its removal? Generally speaking, my personal opinion is that articles on very local features benefit from being merged as they get much better context that way. -Splash 16:26, 9 September 2005 (UTC)
Agreed, move the lot to Wikitravel. I was very surprised to come across it here. -- Blorg 12:58, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Anyone know why the Merry Ploughboy Pub in Rockbrook is excluded from this section? previously it was Sean Doherty's and before that Leslie Allens. Always been a landmark along the Edmonstown/Cruagh road?Banjoman70 (talk) 02:23, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

This otherwise excellent article is crying out for some photosSuckindiesel

Proposed merge from Woodside, Rathfarnham[edit]

I have proposed merging Woodside, Rathfarnham into this article. It's only an estate of about 100 houses, with no assertion of notability, and needs at most a brief mention in the article on Rathfarnham, not a standalone article. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 15:13, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

OK, done. In the end, I just redirected it, because there didn't seem to be anything worth merging. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 09:55, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Another good decision! You get the odd one right :) Sarah777 (talk) 11:37, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Redlinks[edit]

Anyone mind if I removed the redlinks in this article? They are waiting a long time for articles, eg Taylor's Grange. Sarah777 (talk) 09:51, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
