About This Station

The station is powered by a Davis Vantage Vue weather station. The data is collected every few seconds and the site is updated every 45 seconds. This site and its data is collected using Cumulus Software. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a barometer, a rain gauge, a Blake-Larsen Sunrecorder and a thermo-hydro sensor situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible.

The weathercam images are taken from an Hikvision DS-2CD2035-I IP camera powered over ethernet. The camera is mounted on a pole alongside a Davis Anemometer Transmitter Kit which transmits to the Davis Vantage Vue receiver.

About This Area

Loughlinstown is a small suburban area to the south of Dublin

Loughlinstown was inhabited from at least the Neolithic period when the megalithic portal tomb at Cromlech Fields was constructed circa 2,500 B.C.

Following Henry II's conquest of Ireland the lands around Loughlinstown were granted to the Anglo-Norman Talbot Family. By 1541 they had been granted to Goodman Family, who held them as "warden of the marches" protecting the southern border of the Pale from raids and incursions of the Wicklow Septs.

An 1654 survey describes the area as containing 458 acres, of which 300 acres were the property of James Goodman, who acted as Provost Marshal of the Irish Confederate Army during the Irish Rebellion of 1641. The remaining 128 acres were the property of the Dean of Christchurch.

Loughlinstown was granted to Sir William Domville, Attorney General for Ireland, in the reign of Charles II and James II. The Domville family held the lands for three centuries until 1962 when they were sold to Sir John Galvin.

In 1975 Loughlinstown House and Commons were the subject to a Compulsory Purchase Order by then Dublin Corporation
