Group Photo at Allenwood 1953

With thanks to William Baldrick for the Photos and information
My Father William (Liam) Baldrick worked in Allenwood and in the early 1970s he got promoted to a mechanical instructor in Pigeon House Dublin.
William Baldrick.
Allenwood Generating Station

With Thanks to Anthony McAllister for the photos and information.
In 1952 The ESB had six homes constructed at Newbridge Road Naas for Management employees (known as ESB Houses) A further 24 were constructed at Old Caragh Road. The Parish Priest Fr. P.J. Doyle named them St Gabriel’s Place in honour of The Angel of Light. A bus service ran from there to Allenwood Power Station daily to transport the employees to and from work. I was a home birth in 1954 and continue to reside here.
My late Dad Charlie Mc Allister retired in March 1978 on the occasion of his 65th birthday. I don’t know the other people in the photograph presenting him with the invisible cheque.
The late Liam Baldrick lived for many years at number 15. His son Liam Junior now lives in Australia but like his father is meticulous is preserving archive material. I have copied him in this email as I feel he will be able to share some insights with you from his Dad’s time there and laterally as Training Instructor at The Pigeon House.
