I've had a look at the pdf file - Sráidainmneacha Bhaile Átha Cliath - but I can't find the part of Dublin called Islandbridge. I'm not whether it should be - Droichead na hInse - or the other way round - Inse an Droichid. Does anyone know ?

Go raibh maith agat. I suppose that if the original name was in Irish - inse - as used here in this context, would really have meant a water meadow rather than an island ?

The original name was certainly in English.
And the Irish name was "droithchead an iléain" in 1728 (acc. to logainm.ie -> "view text records")

An ea nach oileán iad Bellevue Blocks?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islandbridge :
Quote:
Island Bridge and the surrounding area are so named because of the island formed here by the creation of a mill race towards the right bank while the main current flows to the left.

Ceart go leor (the address in question is - Cé Uisce an Droichid - which is why I was asking)
