So the question is why do you think
people long ago decided to live at
Rathdown rather than Greystones?
We think these early settlers chose to live in Rathdown
• Because it was more sheltered,
(Greystones would be wild and windy.)
• There was the sea and a fresh water spring nearby.
• They could eat the birds and animals in the wood.
• It was on a hill. They could see their enemies coming.
We think these early settlers chose to live
north of Greystones because it was more sheltered.
There were the advantages of living beside the sea
and having a fresh water spring nearby.
Woodland birds and animals
could have been a source of food.
