Parish of the Annunciation Rathfarnham Parish Pastoral CentreThe parish Pastoral Centre is located on Willbrook Road. This old building began its life as a boy’s school in January 1842. From 1975 to 1977 it briefly accommodated two classes from St Mary’s Boy’s National School. From 1978 until the opening of the new Tallaght Courthouse in 2000 the building served as a district court. To many locals it is still referred to as the old court house.
