On Connaught Street, another fine building (left), forming part of a classic Irish-town streetscape (right), also has a demolition application.

Two doors down from it, a chemists has been PVC’d since last time I was there.

A former Connaught Street gem, the Shamrock Bar, has fallen into dereliction.

While these buildings (top left & right) at the corner of Connaught Street and Patrick Street have been completely demolished.

I suppose the town council are too preoccupied with their grand Civic Centre and Town Centre plan on the more prosperous Westmeath side of the town to worry about what’s going on on the other side of the Shannon, hence a valuable surviving historic urban area like Connaught Street is going to the dogs.
