Appraisal

Significant example of a commercial building from the turn of the twentieth century. Although alterations have been carried out, this building retains some original material, as well as its scale and form generally unaltered. Contributes positively to the street in terms of character and function. Important also due to its location on one of the main commercial streets of Cork city.
