Perrin's Row is listed in Griffiths Valuation as being on the "Back Road", Glasthule (Eden Road) and shows over 50 houses of small valuation - many at the level which would be appropriate to a one-room hovel.
In the 1901 census, it appears that the houses of Eden road, Perrin's Row and Magenta Place were lumped together (Magenta Place was called Airds Row), a total of 27 houses
Browne's report of 1901 refers to Ubank's cottages in the Eden Road area, with 12 houses - this may be another name for Perrin's Row.
By the 1911 census, there were only 4 dwellings, of which 3 were single-room dwellings
Perrin's Row ran downhill from the railway bridge on the left side of Eden Road. One cottage survives immediately beside the railway. This was later a Railway premises and home of poet Padraic Colum in his childhood.
