KAY O’MAHONYS PUB AT THE BUTTER EXCHANGE IN CORK [SHANDON AREA OF CORK]
Kay O’ Mahony’s, 21 Dominick Street, Cork City, Cork City.
As you can see from my photographs this building appears to be badly neglected. I have also noticed that many wall mounted post boxes in Cork city badly need painting.
[Official Description] Terraced four-bay two-storey house, built c. 1840, now also in use as public house. Façade altered in 1876, with moulded render window surrounds, round-headed openings and shopfront inserted to ground floor. This house makes a positive addition to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the building. The façade of the building is enlivened and enhanced by the moulded render detail, which articulates the square-headed and round-headed openings. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the timber fixed window to the shopfront, timber sash windows and timber panelled door.
