The Heritage of Delgany Co. Wicklow

In 2016 Delgany Community Council, with financial assistance from the Heritage Council, commissioned Courtney Deery Heritage Consultants to undertake an archaeological, architectural and cultural survey of the village and its hinterland. Working with community representatives and using a variety of sources of information including local residents, former businesses, friends of Delgany along with Church records and data available through the National Library and National Archives, we are now delighted to make available for the first time, a comprehensive inventory of the rich archaeological, architectural and cultural heritage of Delgany Village.  The Heritage of DelganyThe Heritage of Delgany

Delgany (IrishDeilgne, meaning "Thorny Place") is a village in County Wicklow on the R762 road between Greystones and the N11 road at the Glen of the Downs. It is about 25 km (16 mi) south of Dublin city centre.

It is a commuter village separated from the western edge of Greystones by the adjoining village of Killincarrig. There is a Church of Ireland parish church and the parish school Delgany National School and a Catholic Carmelite Convent[2] in the village. Delgany is in the Roman Catholic parish of Kilquade and the parish church is located in Kilquade about 4 km (2.5 mi) south. The local Catholic school is St Laurence's which is located on Convent Road between Delgany and Greystones. The village is surrounded by wooded hills (including Kindlestown Wood[3] ) and the Glen of the Downs. 


Delgany has two golf clubs, Delgany GC[4] and the newer Glen of the Downs GC.[5]

It used to have 3 pubs: The Wicklow Arms has been sold for redevelopment and the Delgany Inn is now home to a baker, grocer, fishmonger and Pigeon House restaurant. The only one which still operates as a pub is the The Horse and Hound, on the main street, Convent Road, which is also home to Farrelly's Butchers, a deli and a convenience store.


Recently "The Old Burial Ground" has been restored and opened to the public. The 1-acre (4,000 m2) site is protected and contains the ruins of a 13th-century church, the stump of a 6th-century high cross and graves dating from the 18th century. (See thumbnails). In the 1990s, Delgany was the location for the recording of Tori Amos' third album Boys For Pele.

An advert for a directory enquiry company was filmed at the old Patterson's Garage in the village.
