Today was a beautiful sunny day so I took the opportunity to visit this park and was delighted to discover that it is still open to the public. There was no sign of anti-social behaviour which is good news. When I visited last November there was a homeless [or he appeared to be homeless] man sitting on a wall and he was there again today. According to a woman and her dog the park is now open 24 hours a day … I cannot confirm if this is true.

[WHAT I SAID BACK IN NOVEMBER 2016]

There are two separate parks which may be related but in general most tourist guides are unaware of this fact to the extent that some claim that Anna Livia is located in the park beside the the Museum Luas Tram Stop.

The major park, the one normally associated with the museum, is officially the Croppies Acre 1798 Memorial Park while the smaller park featuring Anna Livia and a small pond is the Croppies Memorial Park. The distinction is important because the larger park has been closed to the public for extended periods.

For many years due to anti-social behaviour, mainly drugs related, the major memorial park was off-limits to the public. There was also problems with homeless people occupying parts of the park. Even today, there was a tent towards one corner of the park. One cannot blame the homeless for taking advantage of the available space.

On Tuesday, 14th June at 2:00 p.m. the Croppies Acre 1798 Memorial Park, Wolfe Tone Quay, Dublin 7 was once again open to the public but I did not get a chance to visit until today [November 7 2016]. Having been conditioned to the park being always closed I found the fact that the gates were partly opened a little bit unsettling and as I was the only person [if one ignores the tent and one person who left immediately I arrived] in the park I was a bit worried that an official might come along and lock the gates without informing me. This has happened to me in the past elsewhere.

Following discussions in 2013 with the Office of Public Works it was agreed that the management of the 4.3 acre Park would transfer from the Office of Public Works to Dublin City Council.

Dublin City Council’s Parks and Landscape Services have carried out an extensive works programme to upgrade the park and make it more accessible for the citizens of Dublin and visitors to the city.

The works include a new circulatory path system, upgrading of the existing pedestrian gates and the provision of a new pedestrian gate at the south west end of the park. Existing memorial structures have been upgraded and general landscape improvement works have been carried out. The total cost of the works, were in the order of €120,000.

To be fair the park was in excellent condition when I visited today but the presence of a tent was a bit worrying as was the careless attitude to properly opening the gates.

The name ‘Croppy’ was used in Ireland in the 1790s and was a reference to the rebels who closely cropped their hair to mimic the French Revolutionaries of the period who cut their hair in contrast to the aristocracy who wore powdered wigs.

Historically the Croppies Acre was located on land under common pasturage and part of what was termed ‘Oxmantown Green’.

In the 17th century, a portion was later presented to the Viceroy, the Duke of Ormond to build a palace, however this was never built and the site was sold to the City Authorities for a Barracks. Built in 1704, it served as a military base for 250 years, it was formally the Royal Barracks and later Collins Barracks.

The Esplanade where the Croppies Acre is located today was fully constructed by the 1850s, complete with boundary walls and ornate railings. During the Great Famine, the Esplanade was the site of a food kitchen. By the 1900s, the land was levelled to form two football pitches for the military. In 1997, the Decorative Arts Section of the National Museum was opened in Collins Barracks and the Memorial Park was subsequently designed and laid out in 1998.

The site of Ratcliffe Manor is such that it has acharming outlook. One sees the windings of the TredAvon and the fine farms of this rolling, fertile country.To approach the house one drives through a long avenueof trees set in rows about one hundred feet apart, andthis avenue is bounded by white bar fences of oldtimeappearance. The home grounds are encircled by afence of this same fashion and in back of the house theland is terraced, falling away to the river in gracefulgreen sweeps. Here, too, are shrubs and flowers, whilegiant trees give a grateful shade from summers sun. In exterior view, Ratcliffe Manor has a great atmos-phere of comfort and content. It is not large but verywell proportioned. In design it follows the Marylandconvention, consisting of a central building with a wing, 148

In a place of small extent, it is desirableto have this walk as long as possible, which is generally ef-fected by making the circuit of the space offered, keeping atsuch a distance from boundary fences that they may not beobtrusive.
