History of Finglas


The name Finglas (Fion-glaiss), meaning a clear streamlet, is derived from the rivulet, which flows through the village and joins the Tolka at Finglas-bridge.
Finglas first appeared in history as the site of a Celtic abbey, the origin of which has been associated, from early times, with the name of St. Cainnech, or Canice, the patron of Kilkenny. According to an ancient legend, the ground on which it stood had been sanctified by St. Patrick, who is said to have uttered from it a prophecy that a great town would arise at the ford of hurdles in the vale beneath. Since then, Finglas has continued to have an interesting history spanning Celtic times, the Anglo-Norman invasion, Tudor and Stuart times, the Rebellion, the Restoration, the Revolution, the Union till the present day.
