Appraisal

This former department store is a notable addition to the streetscape. Though now altered to the ground floor, the upper levels of the building are of apparent architectural form and design. This building is representative of architectural design in Ireland in the first part of the twentieth century.It is articulated by the decorative detail, such as the double-height pilasters, string course and moulded eaves course.
