RATHMINES AND RATHGAR TOWNSHIP/URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL LIST 10:
Introduction: The following documents relate to property in the present Mount Pleasant Avenue and
Gulistan Avenue, Rathmines, which was held by widow Mary Halahan under a lease issued by the Earl of Meath for one hundred years in 1832. In this lease the property is described as “No. 8, part of Cullenswood”; after 1846, it is called “Gulistan” which may have been inspired by the epic work of that title written by the 13th century Persian poet, Sadi. The Gulistan was first translated in 1787 and proved to be very popular, with extracts being quoted frequently as proverbs (1).
Mary Halahan died in 1846 and bequeathed her interest in Gulistan to her unmarried daughters, Jane, Dorothea and Lucy Halahan (see UDC/1/10/2, below). The Halahan sisters issued building leases to their sister-in-law Mrs. Sophy Halahan, which resulted in six houses being erected at Gulistan Avenue (see UDC/1/10/3, below); and to their sister Mrs. Augusta Fitzsimons, who built two fine villas which are still standing, Aubrey Cottage and Mosaphir Cottage (see UDC/1/10/4 and 6, below). The Meath lease was later bequeathed by the Halahan sisters jointly to their nephew Christopher, son of their brother Hickman Rose Halahan; and to their niece Mary, daughter of their brother Samuel Handy Halahan and wife of Richard H. Dowse. After 1880, the Dowses took out several mortgages on Mary’s interest in the property, to which she had to affirm her voluntary consent, an acknowledgement of the improved status of married women. In 1891, the Commissioners of Rathmines and Rathgar purchased the Halahan
family’s interest in Gulistan, with a view to the erection of artisan dwellings on the site (see UDC/1/Mins. 1/6, pp 293, 338). The documents which are contained in list 10 came into the possession of the Commissioners together with the property at that time.
This descriptive list was prepared in 1982 and portions of it were drawn up by Rose Doyle and Norma Foley, as part of work-experience while studying for the Diploma in Archival Studies at University College Dublin.
