Video of Cabra - Phibsboro District, Dublin City , Republic of Ireland

Cabra (Irish: Cabrach) is a suburb on the northside of Dublin city in Ireland. It is approximately 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) northwest of the city centre, in the administrative area of Dublin City Council. It was commonly known as Cabragh until the early 20th century.

Phibsboro (Irish: Baile Phib) is located about two km north of the city centre, in Dublin 7. Phibsborough is bordered by Glasnevin to the north, Drumcondra to the east, Cabra to the north-west and Grangegorman to the west. The centre of Phibsborough is an intersection commonly known as Doyle's Corner.

The townland of Cabra is in the civil parish of Castleknock which is in turn in the Barony of Castleknock. The barony (an old administrative division) is one of seven and a half comprising County Dublin and stretches from Cabra to Blanchardstown (from east to west) and from Finglas to Chapelizod (from north to south).

For hundreds of years Old Cabra Road ran through quiet peaceful farmland and it was not until the 1920s that large scale housing developments took place.

Quarry Road was originally called Quarry Lane after a small quarry which was situated near where the current statue of Our Blessed Lady is located at the roundabout with Fassaugh Road (which originally was called Fassaugh Lane.) This quarry was filled in the early part of the 1900s and the family who lived in the Homestead grew cabbages on the reclaimed land.

Much of Cabra was built in the 1940s as a building programme for public housing by Dublin Corporation. Before it was built, the area mostly comprised fields and open countryside on the edge of the city and in the townland of Grangegorman.

The Royal Canal passes east to west along the northern boundary, separating Phibsboro from Glasnevin at Cross Guns Bridge. A city bound spur of the canal went south beyond the old City Basin (Blessington Street Park) to Broadstone. The canal spur is now covered by a tree-lined linear park. The adjacent park road was built on the old canal bank and now consists of interesting variety of multi-period housing. It is appropriately called The Royal Canal Bank. The one km canal branch separated below the fifth lock of the Royal Canal's main line. It passed Mountjoy Gaol, and went under the North Circular Road by Blacqueire Bridge. It ran along the high banked eastern side of the Phibsborough Road. The Foster Aqueduct carried the canal over the Phibsborough Road to the terminus, a large harbour at Broadstone, directly opposite the Kings Inns at Constitution Hill.

A major Dublin teaching hospital, the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, which is close to the Temple Street Children's Hospital is located here.
