17. Elbow Lane/Darell Cottages

This was a pre-Famine cul-de-sac, located at the entrance of St. Teresa’s Place. It contained a double row of cabins for poor people who succumbed to the horrors of the 1845-’50 famine. These dwellings were removed completely and replaced shortly afterwards by a neat row of well-built stone dwellings called Darell Cottages, after the previously mentioned reverend gentleman (no. 14).
