The underlying structure is an “egg-crate” – concrete columns and floors and endwalls. At the end you’re talking about the concrete endwall stops above the brickwork. there is a concrete retaining wall behind the brickwork but they had a lot of trouble with the water table during the construction so maybe it’s settled a bit over the last 50 years.

The actual owners are the Department of Social Welfare – CIE started to build it but were bought out when they didn’t have the cash to finish it and subsequently have a 100 year lease – I think its 100 anyway.
