Royal Irish Constabulary 1850s

Would anybody on the forum know the location of the bridge end police station in Belfast would have been in the 1800s as my Great Great Grandfather was Head Constable there in 1853 his name was James McIntyre

I really don't know but I'm guessing that it could have been somewhere near where Middlepath Street is now or somewhere around the site of the old Sirocco Works which is close by , that area is known as Bridge End I believe.

In 1887 it was situated at 81 Bridge End, the same side as Memel Street.  :)
