Description
Corner-sited terraced two-bay three-storey commercial premises, built c.1900, having a shopfront to the ground floor on both principal facades (east and north). Three-bay elevation to Mount Street. Hipped natural slate roof with cast-iron rainwater goods, a projecting decorative brick eaves course, a shared red brick chimneystack to the west end (with 15310066) and a rendered chimneystack to the east end (of Oliver Plunkett Street façade). red brick construction to the upper floors with shallow segmental-headed window openings having one-over-one pane timber sliding sash windows. Rendered band to the corner at junction of facades. Modern shopfront to the ground floor with square-headed openings and imitation rusticated ashlar work. Road-fronted at the junction of Oliver Plunkett Street and Mount Street.

Appraisal

A prominently-sited building, of late nineteenth /early twentieth-century date, which retains much of its early character. This plainly detailed red brick building neatly turns the corner at one of the most prominent road junctions in Mullingar and is an addition to the built heritage of the town.
