former bank-yeats building_lge

Originally designed as the Royal Bank by Vincent Craig, brother of the first Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, Lord Craigavon. After the formation of Allied Irish Bank, it was donated to the Yeats Society in 1973. The building is not very bank-like – resembling a small manor house with its half timbered gable and tower.
