    Default The Grove

    Any other ex-Groveheads on here? The Grove disco as a kid was the place to be.

    The Grove was something else and deserves this tribute.

    30 years of a Northside Dublin institution - The Grove disco which ran from 1967 to 1997.

    The 80's was my time.

    From its inception in Belgrove Football Club, through the fire which razed it to the ground and on to the 'New Grove' in St. Paul's, Raheny this disco was central to the lives of local teenagers for three decades.

    The Grove was more than a disco, it was a rite of passage a place that marked a point of maturity in the life of a teenager of the area; where many had their first kiss, wet fingers & found their first love or perhaps experienced their first heartbreak.

    Love to hear it if you went there?

    No cant say I do or went there honey as I feck off to the UK then but just did not wish to leave you hanging on your own with this one. Lol

    Sounds a lot of fun, but dont think I would have gone even if I stayed being from the west and a county bumpkin back then too. loll xx

    It was UK stringfella, 007 night club at the hilton hotel in park lane and a few other spots in london then for me, but even when I look at the photos I cant help laughing, the mad curly hair (which I still have) and the shoulder pads. loll. Thankfully I am like a chameleon and the just seem to look so much younger now than I even did back them.

    Thank you however is looking over me. loll x

    So that's how it got the name...never knew that!

    Never there myself but heard loads about it. Used to be great pub scene around D3 and 5, the Sheds, Harry Byrnes, the Castle, the Yatcht, etc. then on to Tamango's and finally back of airport or the Bull Wall.

    Ah the Grove
    Regular there for 2/3 years.
    Many a kiss and cuddle and allowed to "drop the hand"
    as we said back then
    The best spot was behind the stage.
    They had regular re-unions in the Clontarf Castle with DJ Cyril until
    recently.
    I am who I am and I am happy with who I am.
