A little history…
Westmoreland Street is named after John Fane, the 10th Earl of Westmoreland, who was Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1789 to 1794.
The genesis of Westmoreland came in the late 18th century when a plan was submitted and approved by Parliament to provide a link with a new bridge across the River Liffey and joining up with a new continuation of Sackville Mall beyond Drogheda Street. It is still one of the widest streets in Dublin.
