Appraisal

A small-scale building of modest form and appearance that is of primary importance for its original intended use as a watch tower during 'The Emergency' (1939 - 1945), and which forms a subtle feature in the landscape. The watch tower is one of a group located along the coastline of County Waterford (including 22902610/WD-26-10 and 22904010/WD-40-10).
