Meet the poker sisters of Monto. by Martin Coffey folklore member.
The sisters ran brothels in Gloucester Lane off Railway Street Dublin. We have in storage the “Monto Cross” that hung over one of the Madams beds & would later be hung over beds of dying prostitutes of Monto. pic.twitter.com/sfp9baVQ1v
