There was a pub located near me named Bodkins and having lived near Derry and having some knowledge of the shirt making industry I was aware that a bodkin was a type of hand sewing needle therefore I thought that the pub was so named because it is located on Yarnhall Street but I recently discovered that the Bodkin is the family name of the owners. As a matter of interest Bodkins has been transformed into an excellent Pizza Restaurant named BoCo and it has been rated as being one of the most child friendly restaurants in Ireland.
Linenhall Street [off North King Street] and Yarnhall Street [off Bolton Street], are reminders that for much of the 18th Century, Dublin was of central importance to the country’s linen trade. Linen weaving has been a central feature of Irish life from as far back as the late Bronze Age and it was a particularly important industry during the 18th and 19th Centuries. In those days, linen manufacture was a cottage industry and it provided a regular source of income for families in rural areas throughout Ireland.
Google maps shows Yarnhall Street as being part of Henrietta Place.
