ARDEE STREET AND NEARBY IN PIMLICO
Because of a very heavy rain storm the lighting was unusual and the sky was really dark.
If you ask a Dubliner to name the areas of the city that begin with the letter P very few, if any, will suggest Pimlico.
Ardee Street was a centre of the brewing industry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and in 1835 No. 4 Ardee Street was occupied by James Haigh, described as ‘engineer, millwright, foundry brass and iron works’.
Pete St John’s popular song Dublin in the Rare Old Times, recorded by many artists including Dublin City Ramblers, The Dubliners, and Flogging Molly, is in the voice of one Sean Dempsey, “born hard and late in Pimlico, in a house that ceased to be”.
Watkin’s brewery dates from the early 18th century, and was producing beer long before Guinness their near neighbour in the same trade at St. James’s Gate. There has been a brewery on the site since the time of the Abbey of St. Thomas the Martyr in nearby Thomas Court. Subsequently the site came into the possession of the Earl of Meath’s, from whom Meath Street, Earl Street and even Brabazon Street (Brabazon is their surname) all take their name. The Earls of Meath also held the title Baron Ardee, hence the name of the street.
Pimlico is an inner city area of Dublin, Ireland on the Southside in Dublin 8. It lies between Thomas Court and Ardee Street. At the Thomas Court end of Pimlico is Pimlico Cottage. It is close to the St. James’s Gate Guinness Brewery and the smell of the hops once dominated the area.
