Appraisal

This substation is representative of the design employed by the ESB in the mid twentieth century in Ireland. This functional building is a well-articulated building, with a high level of design and detailing. Notable features of the building include the inset channel for the cast-iron downpipe, moulded parapet and consoles, and the render plaque.
