KINGS INNS STREET [CONNECTING BOLTON STREET TO PARNELL STREET]
Today the schools returned and as a result Kings Inns Street was full of excited children when I visited at about lunch time.
The original Williams & Woods is the landmark building on Kings Inns Street. The industrial building, where products such as Toblerone and Mint Crisp were manufactured, was Dublin's first reinforced concrete building.
Donnelly & Moore designed this large building as a jam and sweet factory and it was constructed by G. & T. Crampton for Williams & Woods in 1910. There was confectionary factory on the site since 1856.
To the best of my knowledge it operated as a data storage centre for many years. The building is being now being developed as a creative community, Chocolate Factory, with studios, event spaces and a cafe.
Mount Carmel National School operates from a modernist building, located on Kings Inns Street. It built to designs by William H. Byrne & Son, to replace an earlier nineteenth-century building, which itself had replaced the original school located on Middle Abbey Street, dating from 1812. The compact multi-storey plan addressed the need for space on a restricted site within the densely populated city centre, and included a roof-top playground.
