Terraced two-bay three-storey commercial building, built c.1880, having a modern shopfront across the ground floor. Pitched natural slate roof with a red brick chimneystack to either end (east and west) and a decorative brick eaves course. Constructed using red brick to upper floors with raised red brick quoins to the corners, blue brick banding and projecting brick string courses incorporating drip labels over the window openings. Shallow segmental-headed window openings with polychromatic brick lintels and replacement windows. Modern shopfront to ground floor with square-headed fixed pane windows and a central recessed square-headed doorway. Square-headed doorway to the west side of shopfront. Road-fronted to the south side of Oliver Plunkett Street.
A good quality late nineteenth-century building, which retains its early character to the upper floors and has a strong presence in the streetscape. The construction to the upper floors is an attractive exercise in polychromatic brickwork and creates an appealing visual effect in the streetscape towards the centre of Mullingar.
