To create awareness of the MM300 activities during the year road banners were erected on the entry roads into Mount Merrion. The banners were sponsored by the Heritage Office, Dun Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council) as part of its support for our local history.
In 1711 the Fitzwilliam Family established a new home in an area subsequently known as Mount Merrion.

Add to our History
While the Society has gathered an amount of local history about Mount Merrion and its environs we believe there are many more images and stories know to others who might be willing to share that data. We are inviting viewers to bring forward their information which we will share through a Miscellany Corner of contributions.
