19 Belvedere Road was once owned by the famous Dublin man Alfie Byrne. For more than forty years, he was a prominent figure in public life, serving his country and city with a rare and single-minded devotion. Himself a true Dubliner, he had a profound understanding of, and deep sympathy for, the needs and interests of his fellow-citizens, especially the poor. It is not too much to say that he lived for them, for wherever there was distress, he was promptly on the spot to ensure that assistance was made available with the utmost speed. The press called him the “Shaking Hand of Dublin”, Alfred the Great, and The Lord Mayor of Ireland, but most people knew him simply as Alfie. As one of the most popular Dublin-born politicians of the 20th Century, and in 1954, Byrne was elected as Lord Mayor for a record tenth time.
