Baldongan is a small rural hamlet lying between Skerries, Lusk and Loughshinny in Fingal, north county Dublin. The market garden for Dublin, Fingal still has a rural charm and beauty that belies its proximity to the sprawl of the capital. The area has not completely escaped urban blight and there have been many new housing estates developed over recent years. Baldongan, however, is still a very rural area, consisting of agricultural land and a few dwellings. It is a delightful place to live.

Once a year, Skerries hosts the famous Skerries 100 motorcycle road races, on the first Saturday in July, and Baldongan is situated on the racing circuit.  It is run by the wonderful Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club, whose members put great effort into running a great event every year, though we have had some tragedy in recent years.

I hope you will enjoy the blog and visit regularly.
