1927 – No. 51 – 54 St. Patrick’s Street, Cork

Architect: James F. McMullen


Ornate large former department store building for Alex Grant & Co., now divided into smaller retail units. The upper storeys look neglected and the whole building has a forlorn air. Rebuilt after the burning of St. Patrick’s St., the property was Grant’s department store before being acquired by Green Property in the 1970s. Though now altered to the ground floor, the upper levels of the building are of a distinctive architectural form and design.
