English: Ballybough is a district of north Dublin, Ireland situated northeast of Summerhill, between the Royal Canal and the River Tolka. Adjacent areas are North Strand, Fairview and Drumcondra/Clonliffe. The name derives from the Irish baile "town" and bocht "poor". The area was synomymous with being a leper colony in the 18th Century when it was then known as Mud Island, an extension of the mud flats that now form Fairview and environs.
