J.J. Woods photo: from the bottom of the
picture -the first row of houses are what remained of Lowry's Lane in
1970. The adjoining yard with all the overgrowth belonged to the
Purcell family. The yard at the top of the photo, alongside Purcells,
was in the ownership of Ina Brennan.
- Lawry's (Lowry's)
Lane used to go through what is now St. Patrick's college to the old
Dublin road somewhere opposite or near the Courthouse. During the 1798 rising
some of the united Irishmen escaped through the lane from Tullow

another item of Carlow history that should be highlighted for locals
