Slade Valley walk
The Ancient Slade Road.
By Tom Mansfield
Think of a time when no road existed from the Embankment to Crooksling to near Brittas.
A time when there was no road from the Craddle to the Craddle /Slade Road.
The ancient Slade road connected Tallaght and Saggart to Blessington via Boherboy to Brittas.
With the building of Downshire and Glenareen Bridge it became a Coach Route.
