Was the Irish quarter where the bus station is now? Donnybrook and Charles Street areas?

I think that it became the Irish quarter at some point. The original Irish quarter was around Hamnett street, I believe, as there used to be Catholic services held at what is now Santander Bank.

And I seem to recall that it was popularly known as 'The knife and pistol'

Anyone know why?
