Placename : St. John's Without

In Irish : Paróiste Eoin (Lasmuigh)     Administrative Unit : Parish     Audio File (.wav) Pronunciation Audio File

Administrative Details:

This Parish was in two parts, styled respectively St. John’s Within and St. John’s Without. One part, as its name suggested, lay within the city wall; the other embraced the adjacent suburbs or liberties. The parish took its name from the Benedictine Priory of St. John the Evangelist, in which it was impropriate. St. John’s tutelage (ancient and modern) is recalled by quite a host of street names etc. within the parish; thus we have St. John’s Church, College, Schools, Mills, &c., John’s Street, Town, Lane, Place, Pill, Avenue and Bridge.
