Appraisal

This terrace of modest but attractive workmen's houses testifies to the significance of Greenore's industrial past. The combination of the large port and the railway created the need for workers' housing which was provided here to a high standard. These houses retain many of their salient features and are a valuable part of Greenore's architectural legacy.
