O'Donoghue Street 

O'Donoghue Street is located in the Hamilton, New Zealand suburb of Hillcrest.  It was named in 1962 by G.E. O'Donoghue, the owner of the property.  There is no documentary evidence to indicate why this street was named O'Donoghue Street, but Mr O'Donoghue probably named it eponymously.  (HCC) (HCL) (Lands & Surveys)
