I've read a reference to a Wexford sailor 'Jing Harpur' related to Foleys - I think it may be referring to John Harpur that married Bridget Foley? Would anyone know if this John Harpur was known as 'Jing'?

Previous post prompted me to have a look through Council minutes.
It would appear the name 'Thomas Clarke Villas' was agreed in 1967, but 'Thomas Clarke Place' came into use in 1968

Excellent, thanks for the Council minutes. Looks like the Duke St. change was sometime after 1932.

In the newspapers of 1920, there was a range of suggested name changes to streets - Duke St. was proposed to be changed to Thomas Clarke St. However, it is now called Thomas Clarke Place, so I am wondering when it was formally changed and why did 'St.' change to 'Place'?

Does anyone know when Duke Street formally changed to Thomas Clarke Place? Did it become Thomas Clarke Street first?

Does anyone have any old photos of Charlotte Street in Wexford? I'm looking to find photos from anytime from 1915 to 1999.

John Foley, baptized Wexford, 25 May 1836

The newspaper obituary of John Foley in 1907 states he was aged 71 when he died, so this matches up. He was a Printer/Compositor originally from John St. (as per Bassett's directory 1885), and had moved to Mary St. by the 1901 census.
Is there a baptism record online for this John Foley?
