Appraisal

Pearse Street, formerly Great Brunswick Street, was laid out by the Wide Street Commission in the early nineteenth century, and renamed in 1922 to commemorate Patrick and William Pearse, whose family had a shop at number 27, and who were executed for the part they played in the 1916 Rising. This is one of a terrace of houses, sharing parapet height and detailing, built along the north side of the street. It was used for a number of commercial purposes since the mid-nineteenth century. It retains much of its traditional form and character, contributing to the character of the streetscape.
