The street is named after The 1st Duke of Marlborough, known for his victory at Blenheim during the 18th century. In the late 19th century it was for a time called Tyrone Street after Tyrone House. The lower part of the street was at different times called Union Lane, Ferryboat Lane, and Union Street.[1]


One of the principal buildings on this street is St Mary's Pro-Cathedral, designed by John Sweetman, and completed in 1825.[2] Other buildings include offices of the Department of Education and Skills.[citation needed]
