John Mitchel, Young Irelander and editor of The Nation, was an early resident. He lived in No. 1 Heathfield, later No. 60 Upper Leeson Street. The house was demolished in the 1960s and the site is now occupied by a block of flats on the Appian Way. Mitchel moved in to the house in the mid-1840s. In a letter to a friend he said that he expected 'to get our own house about Thursday next or Friday. We are very much pleased with the house and the water is delicious.' He lived here for about two years.
