Joanne Sloan’s Doll House 1980s

“This dolls house was hand made for my daughter Joanne by my brother Maurice Sloan in 1984. It is a copy of one my Grandad William made for me in 1951. He also made four or five others for my cousins. Some of the contents are from the original house. I hope people will enjoy seeing it when museum opens.

My Grandad lived in Drumcondra, and we came from Dollymount,  now Dublin 13 and Baldoyle.” Margaret.
