Appraisal

This house forms a pair with the adjoining house to the west. Its raised entrance is typical of houses on the quay, whose forms reflect 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.
