Appraisal

This building is an interesting example of twentieth-century architectural design in Ireland in the first part of the twentieth century. Built as a public house for the adjoining cinema to the south, this building is a positive addition to the streetscape. The shopfront, which retains it's canopy mechanism, is a notable feature of the building, and is interesting to note that the stepped parapet is repeated with the stepped fascia.
