Sean O'Casey (1880-1964). "He loved the smell of the hawthorn tree. The spice of Ireland, Ireland’s Hawthorn tree. And this grand tree was theirs. Right at the top of the little street it stood for everyone in the street to see. The people of the street were always watching it, except in winter when it was bare and bony, cold and crooked. But the minute it budded, they took their eyes to it, and called it lovely." Sean O'Casey - playwright, writer and socialist lived here from 1889 to 1897. Many of the characters in his plays are based on the people of this area. Erected on the 50th anniversary of his death 2014.
