MANOR STREET AND NEARBY IN STONEYBATTER
In the 1950s the Dublin Cattle Market Stoneybatter (known locally as ‘Cowtown’), was the largest weekly livestock sale in Europe. Of the one million cattle, sheep and pigs exported ‘on the hoof’ annually from Dublin, almost all were bought at the market before being driven to boats moored along the North Wall. Fortunately those days are long gone and I say this because I actually remember the smell of the cattle.
Stoneybatter, historically known as Bohernaglogh , is a neighbourhood of Dublin, Ireland, on the Northside of the city between the River Liffey, the North Circular Road, Smithfield Market, and Grangegorman. It is in the Dublin 7 postal district. The name dates from at least 1603.
It is often referred to as Dublin’s “hipster quarter” and was in TimeOut magazine’s list of ’40 coolest neighbourhoods in the world’ in 2019. I must admit that I don’t really know what hipster quarter means within an Irish context.
