Tallaght is a suburb of Dublin 24. It gets it's name from the Irish tamh leacht which means plague burial place. Apparently an early Greek invasion of Ireland by Parthalon culminated in the death of thousands of the invaders from plague.
It has grown very rapidly from rural beginnings into a bustling thriving south Dublin town and suburb. Following many years of very low level of civic facilities the area can now boast a major hospital, a number of schools, a municipal library, a theatre, the Square Shopping Centre, a multiplex cinema, and a selection of hotels, pubs and restaurants.
The area is served by the Luas and a number of public and private bus services. In March 2009 Shamrock Rovers took up residence in the Tallaght Stadium.
Famous Irish footballers from Tallaght include Robbie Keane, Richard Dunne, and Keith Fahey. Fahey signed for Tallaght club Shamrock Rovers, in the League of Ireland, in November 2014.
