Description

Cast-iron vent pipe, erected c.1880, with fluted base, cylindrical shaft and crown head.

Appraisal

Sewer vent pipes are becoming quite rare features in small Irish towns. The design and detail of this vent is similar to lamp standards of the same era. Today it stands as an item of traditional street furniture, and one that plays a supporting role to the locality's built heritage and streetscapes.
