Roman Lane, Wexford

This is a photograph of a alleyway that is believed to be called Roman Lane. Situated beside the Stores building in Wexford, this particular lane runs between North Main Street and the quay. The name of this lane is disputed. According to local historian Nicky Rossiter, this is actually Oaks' Lane.

So, if this isn't the real Roman Lane; where is it?

Nicky Rossiter has pinpointed the lane's location as being beside Shaws and The Party Bar (which used to be Levingston's). As you can imagine, many of these small streets have been lost to progress, as the buildings and streets around them were heavily altered over the centuries.
