This was once much longer road, running all the way from Tredegar Road to the canal in the north. It was broken into three parts with Sycamore Avenue in the north developed following the war and Hewison Road to the south renamed in the 1990s. Its original name is thought to have been a reference to the Irish immigrants who were here in the early 19thCentury. But it may also possibly be a nod to the medieval priest Stephen de Seagrave, who “held the living of Stepney church” sometime in the early 14thCentury and was later made the Archbishop of Armagh.
