Demolished: 1903

The double storey terrace at 5,7,9 and 11 Carahers Lane was constructed sometime between 1845-1856 and may have been built by Owen Joseph Caraher and his brother-in-law Patrick Hogan. (James Casey had bought the land from Edward McRoberts in 1854 for £150 and sold it to Caraher and Hogan in 1856 for £1200. It is possible that James Casey built the terrace before selling it to Caraher and Hogan.) The terrace was sold to John McDonald circa 1880.
