Early 17th century plan of Cork city showing the center of the town lying between North Channel and the South Channel of the River Lee. Paul Street, Cork, looking east. One of the consequences of modernization in Ireland is the disappearance of old names from the street-map.
Sometimes even the street or lane has vanished with later developments. The latter seems somehow appropriate since St Oliver Plunkett spent time in prison before being executed. Other Irish towns and cities have undergone similar processes — anything that smacked of the old regime was removed and a more patriotic name was chosen. Cork city had a fine collection of interesting, even characterful, names!
The cult of respectability removed some of these names. At no point did this lane actually undergo any widening process during its name changes! This habit of upgrading the lane without adding any appreciable improvement in amenities or dimensions is not unique to Cork, but sometimes it really does got out of hand. Happily the moulded plaster barrel vaulted ceiling still survives within.

Port towns were notorious for prostitution — Cork being no exception. The clients were often hit over the head, their purses removed and the wretched men were then disposed of by being dropped over the quay into the north channel of the River Lee.
