Reidy's Terrace was constructed in 1890 and consisted of approx 9 small 2 bedroomed cottages around a central square.
Following a fire which destroyed most of the cottages the terrace was rebuilt in 2000
My grandfather Timothy Flaherty lived in the corner cottage, next to the one with the red door. We loved visiting from England for our holidays as the back wall overlooked the railway shunting yard, now the entranc/exit to Dunnes stores at the top of Rock Street. The railway crossing gates across Rock Street just above Reidy's Terrace entrance allowed the arrival and departure of goods wagons to the Co-oP abbatoir the other side of Rock Street.
