This building on the corner of Clanbrassil Street and Yorke Street contains a fine pair of characteristic Irish shopfronts dating to the turn of the nineteenth-century, the northern shop contains a very attractive curved glass shop window as well as the original shop fittings which add to the significance of the structure. The form and proportion of the exterior make a valuable contribution to the character of Dundalk's main shopping street.
