1901 – Sligo Post Office, Co. Sligo

Architect: Board of Works

A fine post office with shallow, bow-fronted end bays with beautiful banded brick. Above the pedimented doorway inscriptions read ‘ Post Office’ and E 1901 R’. The handsome red brick and ashlar limestone exterior is very much of the Board of Works oeuvre of this time, but the bow-fronted bays are a pleasing departure.
