A flower, fruit, vegetable, and industries show, under the auspices of the Fingal Horticultural Society, of which the Right Hon Lord Talbot de Malahide is the president, was opened on Saturday in the St James’ Square Grounds, Malahide. The society, whose object is stated to be “to encourage the culture of flowers, fruit and vegetables, and to promote home industries generally in the district of Fingal,” was formed last year; and Saturday’s show was the first promoted by it. The exhibits were displayed in a substantially erected marquee in the grounds. Freeman’s Journal, 15 July, 1901

I’ll be giving a talk to the Malahide Historical Society on Wednesday 11th April 2018 in the Presbyterian church hall in Malahide at 8pm. Non-members are welcome.
I’ve researched a local Malahide family using the census, births, deaths & marriage registers and church & grave records.
