Description
Detached five-bay double-height railway goods shed, built c. 1863, with one-bay single-storey block to east, now disused. Pitched slate roofs with brick chimneystack. Coursed limestone rubble walls with dressed stone quoins and verges. Segmental-headed windows, some one-over-one pane timber sash, with brick surrounds and awning to trackside elevation. Segmental-headed carriage arches to northern entrance elevation, with timber matchboard double doors. Trussed timber roof and timber crane to interior.

Appraisal

This is a most notable example of industrial heritage, forming part of a group of railway buildings with the stationmaster's house, the railway station, and the railway bridge. Now disused, it is a physical reminder of the importance of Cloghjordan as a market town in times past. The segmental-headed openings with their neat brick dressings are evidence of the design and craftsmanship employed in this building. The canopy formed by the overhanging eaves to the north is a striking feature.
