Home Forums Ireland Clerys Re: Cleary’s, Dublin architecture



I’m wondering do any of you know why the faces carved along the side wall of Cleary’s on O’Connell Street gradually go up as you near the front of Cleary’s? I think the street is Sackville Place, but I’m not certain. There is, however, a small taxi rank on that street. The stone faces (I’m sure there is a word!) are very downcast the farther they are from O’Connell street and gradually they rise to the extent that the nearest one to O’Connell Street has its head high and is smiling.

Does anybody know the history to this type of architecture?
