Jameson Distillery

Jameson Distillery, Marrowbone Lane
Eamonn Ceannt, in charge at the South Dublin Union, allocated the nearby Jameson’s Distillery in Marrowbone Lane to the battalion adjutant Seamus Murphy, later reinforced by Con Colbert’s company. There were reportedly a large number of women at the distillery.

In the late 1800s it was a thriving whiskey business — not to be confused with the John Jameson whiskey of today — with a distilling capacity that amounted to 3.5 million gallons, combined with others from the Dublin Distillers Company Ltd — but it closed in the 1920s amid competition.

Little or nothing remains of the distillery, while the streets around Marrowbone today are residential properties and businesses.
