Description:
Marrowbone Lane () is a street off Cork Street in Dublin, Ireland. The name is a corruption of St. Mary Le Bone; it was known as Marrowbone Lane as far back as 1743.

The street is known for the fierce fighting that took place on it during the Easter Rising of 1916. The distillery on this street was used as a strongpoint by a force of more than a hundred rebels under the command of Eamonn Ceannt, which also held the nearby South Dublin Union. Ceannt was executed by the British authorities after the rising's failure. His second-in-command was Cathal Brugha, and other participants who achieved later prominence in one way or another were W. T. Cosgrave, Joseph McGrath and Dennis O'Brien.

In describing the careers of participants, the terms "fought at Marrowbone Lane" and "fought at the South Dublin Union" are used interchangeably.

In 1942, William Robert Fitzgerald Collis wrote the play Marrowbone Lane.
