Winifred Carney Road

The Antrim Road at Carlisle Circus also bears the street-name ‘Winifred Carney Road’, given as part of the ‘Naming Our Streets’ project. Carney’s name was chosen for this location – SIPTU offices – because she was a trade unionist and also because she grew up on Carlisle Circus. The project celebrates 50 historically important Belfast women, seven of whom were honoured in this way (Women’s Resource & Development Agency).
