Appraisal

Part of an attractive set piece consisting of six houses with central carriage opening which stand out within the streetscape for their fine moulded render detailing, adding both architectural and artistic interest. A handsome, and substantially-intact, early twentieth-century shopfront represents the progression towards a less ornate architectural style in the Edwardian era and is an important survival as such early shopfronts have become increasingly rare in the Irish townscape.
