That Beamish building is lovely. Cork is full of surprises! The crack in the render just needs to be repaired. I wouldn’t paint it:- the unpainted rough cast render may have been the intended finish. It was often used in this type of Tudor Revival/Arts and Crafts design.
(By the way I think that glass porch has been very insensitively attached onto the handsome 19th century grain store of the Heineken building)
I hear what you are saying about the painting but the building just looks plain dirty Devin!
As for the Heineken building, I was more pointing out the care they have taken of the fabulous cut stone buildings they have (in fact, they appear to be restoring an older cut stone building within the plant at the moment!)
Thanks for the interest,
