Carey’s Lane

Carey’s Lane leads off Patrick Street in Cork to Paul Street and the large Tesco shopping center there. In by-gone days it was part of the Huguenot Quarter of the city.

    what is the meaning upper the “carey’s lane” in english?

    That’s the Irish translation. Literally, “Lane [of] Carey”. Irish sentence structure is often the reverse of what appears in English.
    “Ui” doesn’t mean “of”, but is used in many female names, and basically means “daughter of”. Streets names are female in Irish evidently which is why they used “Lana Ui Chiardha”!
