Appraisal

Named after the Earl of Drogheda, Viscount Henry Moore, North Earl Street was badly damaged in the fighting of the Easter Rising in 1916. Much of the local building fabric was rebuilt in the classical style in the years 1917-19 under the Dublin Reconstruction Act, 1916. Number 2 retains most of its form and fabric dating from this period. A near replica of neighbouring number 3, the front elevation in red brick and granite and the heavy modillion cornice is a motif that is repeated several times along the street.
