1831 – Bank of Ireland, Eyre Square, Galway

Architect: James Cusack


Still in use today, with further extension and alterations by Millar & Symes in 1905. Of interest are the facilities accorded to the Branch Manager – he clearly was expected to have horses and a carriage or coach that merited stabling and storage in the rear yard.
