Inscription.  

HENRY STREET - This street was named in honour of the 3rd Marquis of Lansdowne, Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice (1780-1863), who oversaw a number of major stages in the development of Kenmare. It dates from 1770s but assumed its present form in the 19th century. Interesting details of the street include a number of traditional storefronts and deep archways which lead to the rears of premises. The street is the main entrance into Kenmare from the south via Kenmare's famous suspension bridge.
