In 1851 my great-great-grandparents Thomas and Mary Geraghty and children, including my great-grandfather Peter, lived in the home in the forefront of the photo on the right. This according to the 1851 census and insurance maps which gave the house number, #20. Also would like to point out that it is St. James Church in the background.

Note the 'Gunnel'. All the surface water that landed in this alley would have been removed via this 'gunnel' running down its centre. Also the water running from the fall pipes would have run onto the pavement and across the cobbles, (Or are they sets? It's hard to tell), and away along the 'gunnel'. There seems to evidence of it in the form of a water stain on the pavement, adjacent to the fall-pipe in the right hand foreground. Other household waste water would also have found its way into the gunnel. This is typical of thousands of Alleys, Folds and Yards of this period.

Patrick/Julie My husbands gtgtgt grandfather was also Thomas Geraughty, however we spell it. In 1861 different parts of the family were occupying 6,7 and 8 Goulden's Buildings, ha ha should have called it Geraughty Yard. Notice they came from Ballina as did my family. My husband came down from Michael who was a Rag and Bone collector. In those days it would have been rags and bones, which were used for glue. Hard life poor souls

Appears that my 3x's Great Grandparents and their children, (including my 2x's great-grandmother) lived at #16 in 1861. Michael Buck and wife Mary Brady Buck. My 2x's great grandmother was Anne 'Hannah' Buck, who married Paddy COnnor.
