Appraisal

This house is of a modest scale and form, which contributes to the streetscape. The façade is enlivened by the retention of the timber sash windows. The modest tripartite shopfront is a notable example of its type and is representative of small scale commercial activity which took place in many towns and villages in Ireland.
