I remember watching this unfold in my pre-camera days:

On Merrion Square North there must have been some deterioration in the brick pointing or some differential settlement in the facade, or some such, but anyway the builders moved in and the entire original front wall was taken down to the foundations and rebuilt in reinforced concrete, painted with bitumen and then re-clad in machine cut granite and rustic brickwork, all to – conservation-best-practice – 1980s style.

Somehow the house next door escaped being struck down by the same terminal defect.
