Appraisal

The architectural form of this bank, designed by L. A. O' Donnell, is unique in Trim. The form, combination of materials and detailing are not found anywhere else in the town. The warm reds and browns of the fa├žade contrast with the predominantly limestone or rendered buildings on the street. The articulation of the carved detailing enlivens the streetscape.
