Appraisal

This house forms a pair with the adjoining house to the east. Its raised entrance is typical of houses on the quay, whose form reflects the need to protect them in the event of flooding from the River Suir. Its regular fa├žade is enhanced by the flight of limestone steps and by the petal fanlight and doorcase, and the retention of timber sash windows.
