Where's John's Quay in Dublin?

Dublin related question: Lower John's Quay is appearing in some late 1800s records for me...would this be Sir John Rogerson's Quay?

Haven't seen Lower John's quay so far - where are you seeing this? The name varies from Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Sir John's Quay, Rogerson's Quay/Key...

The text is "20 Sir John R Quay" and "20 Sir J R Quay".

Turns out the mystery is not a mystery afterall. The irishgenealogy transcription read '20 LOWER JOHN'S QUAY' and then that's all I had in mind when looking at the actual documents. Thanks Victor.

Unlikely with St Andrew's parish - people in the area of Thomas St would use a different church.
