St. Theresa's (Sunnyside)

Sunnyside disappears from Thom’s Directory when St. Teresa’s appears. This makes it likely that they are the same house. A name change might have seemed desirabls as Joseph O’Gorman was accused of attempted murder of the sheriffs when they were evicting him from Sunnyside (The Irish Times).
