navans streets and lanes

Sandymount was found on the end of Abbey Rd close to where it joins Watergate St. Like nearby Barrack Lane it was one of the poorest parts of the town.  The houses were typically 2 roomed cabins, with thatched roofs and without proper sanitation or running water.

This area was cleared in the 1930s by Navan UDC.

Philip Hazelwood was the main landlord. The house valuation were from 10 shillings to £3-15-0. Below are the inhabitants of Sandymount as recorded in the 1911 Census.
