Have you ever lived anywhere else but Dalkey? If so, where? And if not, why not?

I came to Dalkey when I was a child and lived here until after my father died in 1972, I lived in a flat in Ballsbridge for a year and there were mice in it so a colleague had to come and empty my mousetrap every night before I could go home from work. Then I discovered Gordon Snell, pursued him to England , married him and went to live in London in a small terraced house in Hammersmith. We both loved coming back to Dalkey where my two sisters and brother were also living and one day we saw exactly the house we wanted and to our delight and thanks to a wonderful generous Building Society manager who took a leap of Faith against all the odds, we got it .
