I do not remember visiting this street before and did not know much about it other than it passes behind a large building described as "a detached thirteen-bay three-storey (twelve-bay to rear) former orphanage, built c. 1890, now partly in use by the health board".

There is also a freestanding octagonal-plan chimney, built c. 1870, standing in the grounds of former Thomond Brewery. Octagonal-plan tapering to a height of approximately fifteen to twenty meters. Common bond yellow clay bricks with four bands of red brick surmounted by concrete coping. Cast-iron vents to the lower stage and copper conductor running up one side.

Originally built with a utilitarian function, this chimney now forms a recognisable landmark within this area of Limerick City. It acts as a reminder of the brewing industry that once existed here.

The Thomond Brewery was established by a family named Stein. The 1840 LOS map shows this brewery as Boyd s brewery. It was one of the last three in operation in Limerick and operated until the late 1870s. The brewery was later demolished and was replaced by the Good Shepherd Convent. The Stein family would later found the Limerick Distillery also known as the Thomond Gate Distillery.
