Square-headed door opening to top floor of east elevation, with smooth rendered reveal and timber battened door. Timber king-post truss roof to interior.

Appraisal

This warehouse looms prominently over the west side of Church Square. A tall early to mid-nineteenth-century structure, it displays local rubble walling especially in the view from Mill Street. The building adds to the architectural variety of the town centre and is a reminder of the indsutrial heritage of Monaghan Town.
