Park Avenue (Dublin)

Park Avenue (Dublin)

Park Avenue ("Ascaill na Páirce" in Irish) in Dublin, Ireland is the name of a road joining Sydney Parade Avenue to the south and Gilford Road in Sandymount to the north in the Dublin 4 postal district. It is home to a number of cricket and rugby grounds including Pembroke CC, Railway Union and Monkstown Rugby Club. Of architectural note is the Church of St. John (Church of Ireland), noted for its French Bath stone's decay due to its proximity to the sea. The church is on an island at the junction of Park Avenue and St. Johns Road, which continues east to the sea.

Park Avenue in Dublin, like its famous namesake in New York City, is noted for its perennially high property prices.
