Old Lanes & Streets of Carlow


Have you ever wondered where Bowling Green Lane was in Carlow town? Or Barnard’s Lane or Schoolhouse Lane? Now is the time to find out.

Dan Carbery, Paul Lyons and Pat O’Neill of the Carlow Historical & Archaeological Society have spent the last few years pouring over old maps, legal documents, lists and publications and they presented the results of their labours at a lecture ‘Old Lanes & Streets of Carlow’  held at 8.00 pm in the Seven Oaks Hotel Carlow on Wednesday 21st March. The talk was extremely well attended.

You can listen to the talk here.

There are a number of lanes whose locations are still unknown and any further information will be most gratefully accepted.
