1891 – National Irish Bank, Balbriggan, Co. Dublin

Architect: Godfrey W. Ferguson



Terraced four-bay two-storey limestone faced bank, built 1891, with a fine tripartite bow window. But the real job of the facade is the front door; a deep eliptical headed carriage arch flanked by Doric columns supporting entablature. This is a fabulously playful facade as most Irish banks tend to be present a sterner facade to the customer.
