Portobello (Cuan Aoibhinn)

Looking toward Robert Emmet Bridge from Little Jerusalem Leonard’s Corner and Upper Clanbrassil Street, this area was also known as Little Jerusalem because it was the center of the Jewish community in Dublin in the first half of the 20th century. The main Jews escaping conditions in Lithuania and later, Russia showed up in the mid 1870s and at last settled off Lower Clanbrassil Street

Portobello (Cuan Aoibhinn)

Irish: portobello Cuan Aoibhinn, means ‘lovely harbour” is an area of Dublin in Ireland, inside the southern downtown area and limited toward the south by the Grand Canal. It appeared as a little suburb south of the city in the eighteenth 100 years, focused on Richmond Road. It was completely developed in the next century, transforming private estates and farmland into solid Victorian red-bricked living quarters for the middle class on larger streets and terraced housing for the working class along the canal.
