My name is Terry and I have lived in the Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, locality for over forty years.
I trained as a tour guide while undertaking a year long Level 5 Certificate in Culture and Heritage Studies in 2012.
A module of the course involved presenting a local history project and I chose the historic Dublin 4 area for my project. I was amazed at the amount of facinating history that the area revealed on close research, and I sucessfully completed the project.
I was later invited by the local residents association to compile a local history booklet which will be printed and distributed to all schools and residents in the local area in 2015.
I am married to Marie and we have two children Rachael 16, and James 13. We have lived in the Dublin 4 area for the past 26 years, and we love the amenities and the history that the locality has to offfer not only to ourselves, but also to the multitudes of international tourists that choose to stay in our local hotels.
