Glenageary (irish place name|Gleann na gCaorach|Glen of the Sheep) is an area in the suburbs of south
County Dublin, Ireland, part of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County.
While there is no officially defined boundary, it is surrounded by the areas of
Sallynoggin, Dalkey, Dun Laoghaire, Glasthuleand Johnstown. The Church of Irelanddoes have a defined boundary for the Parish of Glenageary.
On early 20th century maps Glenageary and Sallynoggin are considered to be the same place and it wasn't until the building of local authority houses in the late 1940's and 1950's in the Townlands of Honeypark and Thomastown by Dún Laoghaire Borough Corporation that a clear distinction between Sallynoggin and Glenageary existed.
The Roman Catholic Parish of Sallynoggin/Glenageary covers all of Sallynoggin, Rochestown and much of Upper Glenageary.
Glenageary is a quiet suburb and consists mostly of private dwellings with shops and some amenities in places.
Until the late 1940's, Glenageary, like much of the southern county, consisted mostly of a handful of large manored estates - each comprised of a large house, some woodland and cultivated or landscaped fields. Since then it has been extensively developed and redeveloped such that the majority of the original manors have been demolished and low density housing developments built. This trend was reinvigorated during the
Celtic Tigerperiod, with its resulting housing boom, such that many large and not so large gardens from earlier developments are now built upon. Little now remains of Glenageary's recent semi-rural past.
Glenageary has one church, St Pauls at the junction of Adelaide and Silchester Roads, which is part of the Anglican (
Church of Ireland) tradition and reflects the religious make-up of the past community. It was opened in 1868.
Glenageary has an Educate Together primary school, confusingly known as the Dalkey School Project.
