Stoneybatter is a neighbourhood of Dublin, Ireland, on the Northside of the city between the River Liffey, the North Circular Road, Smithfield Market, and Grangegorman. It is in the Dublin 7 postal district.
The northern end of Stoneybatter derives its name of Manor Street, bestowed in 1780, from the Manor of Grangegorman in which it was located. During the reign of Charles II (1660-1680), the Manor was held by Sir Thomas Stanley, a knight of Henry Cromwell and a staunch supporter of the Restoration. The short thoroughfare in Stoneybatter called Stanley Street is named after him.
I would describe this as a laneway rather than a street or an access road.
If you use Google Maps to view this laneway you will see a person with three dogs. Today I saw the same person and the same dogs at more-or-less the same location.
There are many laneways in Dublin and most are (perceived) not safe, especially at night. They are generally characterised by poor surfaces, poor lighting, littering, graffiti, vandalism, drug abuse, street drinking and lack of active frontage at ground floor. However, despite the negative issues already mentioned ongoing research indicates that these laneways were historically more intact than might br expected and are in frequent use as integral routes in a functioning network throughout the city.
