Description On the first-edition Ordance Survey map this building is labelled "police barracks" but is shown on the 25-inch map of hte 1890s as Cartron House. At the time of Griffith's Valuation it was still a police barracks and valued at over £12, when it was part of the estate of Sir Thomas Burke of Marble Hill. Madden states that evictions on this estate had resulted in buildings in the area being attacked. Cartron House is still extant and occupied.
