1875 - 1885
Limerick Union Work House
Attached red brick chimneystack, built c. 1880, forming an octagonal shaft rising from square-plan broach base. No longer in use. Brick facing laid in English garden wall bond. Double header course three-centred arched furnace opening with sheet metal panel. Stringcourse and stepped cornice to flue opening. Located to the southwest of the site adjacent to the laundry building.
This fine chimneystack adds to an understanding of the site and contributes to the interesting morphological development of the Limerick Union Workhouse complex. It further adds a layer of industrial archaeological interest to this site.
