Originally built as the Limerick Savings Bank; now after a series of bank amalgamations and closures, Sarsfield Credit Union. This is one of the finest small buildings in Ireland in a neo-classical style. The façade with four Doric columns with fluted shafts presents an austere sense of solidity – essential in a bank. It was commissioned in 1839 from W.H. Owen although it was built by Thomas Newenham Deane.
