Listen back to Cathy Scuffil, Historian-in-Residence as she unravels the story behind this company and the people associated with it. The iconic yellow Dolphin's Barn bricks are an important fashionable addition featured in many house sales promotions. The manufacturer was located on the Crumlin Road from the late 1890s until 1944 with the clay pits extending from Kimmage to the Grand Canal at Goldenbridge. The brickworks were a huge local employer, and many current residents can claim family links to this company. This online talk, hosted by Walkinstown Library was recorded on 6 May 2021.
