Appraisal

This house/shop was the family home of the noted Irish patriot, writer and poet, Charles J. Kickham, and several of his works were written here. The decorative render finish and the well-executed shopfront enliven the fa├žade of the building and provide architectural and artistic interest to the streetscape.
