Video of Stillorgan - Dundrum District, Dublin City , County Dublin, Republic of Ireland

Stillorgan (Irish: Stigh Lorgan, also Stigh Lorcáin and previously Tigh Lorcáin or Teach Lorcáin), formerly a village in its own right, is now a suburban area of Dublin in Ireland.

Dundrum (Irish: Dún Droma, the ridge fort), originally a town in its own right, is now a suburb of Dublin in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, Ireland.

It is popularly believed that the name Stillorgan is either a Danish or Anglo Norman corruption of Teach Lorcan, 'the house or church of Lorcan (Laurence)', possibly signifying St. Laurence O'Toole. Another belief is that it is named after a Danish or Irish chief of a similar name: what may have been his burial chamber was discovered in Stillorgan Park in 1716. The original Celtic name for Stillorgan was Athnakill – 'Place of the Church'.

The local Roman Catholic parish church of St. Laurence is usually presumed to be named after St. Laurence O'Toole, or Lorcán Ua Tuathail, who was born at Castledermot, County Kildare in 1128, died at Eu, Normandy, France, on November , and was canonized in 1225 by Pope Honorius. He was one of four sons of an O'Byrne princess and Murtagh O'Tuathail, King of the Ui Muirdeaigh III.

The location of Stillorgan Castle became the House of St John of God when the Hospitaller Order moved there in 1883, it is now a major psychiatric hospital.

The suburban region defined as the Stillorgan Electoral Area of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown had a population of 19,840 at the 2006 census.

In 1971, Dundrum was one of the earliest places in Ireland to open a purpose-built shopping centre (the first being in Stillorgan). A much bigger shopping centre opened just south of Dundrum on 3 March 2005. Known as Dundrum Town Centre it contains within the complex one of the largest cinemas in Ireland, opened in early October 2005. The plans for the old shopping centre includes space for hotels, apartments and more retail outlets. However this has been postponed and the older retail units have been leased to new tenants such as Lidl.

The College of Further Education in Dundrum is the local community Vocational Education Committee college.

The 19th-century Irish physicist George Johnstone Stoney, the first person to posit the existence of the electron, resided in Dundrum for much of his adult life. Dundrum is the family home of cyclist Stephen Roche, and Oscar winner Brenda Flicker grew up there.
