Open to correction on this, but that has been replaced by a building occupied by the Permanent TSB. The building was originally built by the Irish Permanent Building Society and named “Edmund Farrell House” after the then CEO’s daddy. I think it was initially to be named Sean Lemass House. There was an outcry over it at the time. Then the Trustee Savings Bank took over the IPBS and rightly dumped the HQ’s name. There was a later and separate row over Edmund Farrell’s remuneration package and his home in Foxrock that went to law…. Colm, you are confusing the photo above with the Loreto Convent, a girls’ school that is a few doors down on the same block and does not look dissimilar. Never had to go further than the ones in Dalkey or Foxrock, meself.
