Francis Street - On Facebook

The Iveagh Market - Click the Picture to Become a Facebook Fan

There is a long tradition of street selling in the Liberties. The Iveagh Market was built in 1902 by the Earl of Iveagh to give the people a dry place to sell their goods. The market stands on a site that had once been taken up by an import...ant brewery. The market itself is a fine piece of architecture, with its Queen Anne-style facade on Francis Street and spacious galleried interior. The keystones of the several arches at the front of the building are ornamented with carved heads, which represent the various trading nations of the world.
