whoever did the restoration of that building [No. 80 Capel Street] deserved a medal ………. imagine if the whole terrace was restored to this standard, shopfronts and all, including the two houses that have lost their Wyatt windows, what a head turner that would be!

I agree with gunter!!

AND, leaving aside what might be done with the terrace in the future, the real problem at the moment is the 3 on the left which were refurbished circa 2000 with wide-jointed, ‘rear elevation’ flush pointing when we were still on a learning curve with the new conservation legislation. They are much more visually upsetting than the “red” one. They dominate the terrace. If you cover over them in the picture with your hand, the different hues of the others barely merit comment.
