Appraisal

This building is a physical reminder of a time when Cloghjordan was a busy market town with a bustling railway station. It forms part of a group of railway buildings with the stationmaster's house, the goods shed and the railway bridge. The hipped roof, paired chimneystacks and segmental-headed openings make it similar in style to the stationmaster's house.
