Distinctive and imposing bank building on a prominent site, in the main financial district of Cork. Built for the Munster and Leinster Bank, now a branch of Allied Irish Banks after a series of mergers in the 1960s, this austere bank building is on the South Mall. The building has a fine range of Ionic columns across the upper storeys of the façade, and has a setback attic storey with ballustrade. The two ends of the building feature carved representations of the Munster and Leinster crests on the attic storey.
