Built by Benjamin Whitworth for the benefit of the citizens of Drogheda, this vigourous composition in Lombardo-Romanesque is a good contribution to the street-scape. It cost over 4,000 pounds at the time. All the openings in the fa├žade are so deeply recessed, that they almost form arcades. The remainder of the building is of rubble limestone with some unusual blocked up windows. The exterior has been recently restored, although by all accounts the interior has been less fortunate.
