Our building was known as St Peters Market or the Irish Market built by the City Council following political changes brought about by Catholic Emancipation and as a rival to the nearby English market where natives were not welcome.
We have had a turbulent time since existing through revolutions, floods and cultural change, going from market, to munitions factory to clothing factory and in a way back now to our roots. Join us on this culinary voyage, libations advised – let us take you on a journey.
