Criteria for Risk

  • Suffering from neglect and/or poor maintenance
  • Suffering from structural problems


  • Condition of Structure: Very Poor
  • Level of Risk: High


The building is suffering from major conservation problems. Most of the external fabric remains, but there are obvious signs of deterioration such as slipped slates, vegetation growth, broken windows and vandalism. There is no immediate danger of collapse but condition is such that unless urgent remedial works are carried out the building will sharply deteriorate.

Iconic stone warehouse with doubled-gabled elevation directly fronting Grand Canal Dock (referred to as 'Block B' in 2006 planning application). Long frontage to Ringsend Road. It is historically significant as one of the sites occupied by rebels during Easter week, 1916. This building urgently requires a conservation plan and new uses to be identified to prevent further deterioration of its character.

Updated July 2018: A planning permission was granted in 2016 for a scheme at this site which incorporates main 19th century structures. The scheme is still under construction and due to be completed shortly. It is anticipated the structure(s) will no longer be at immediate risk and can be removed from this register when complete.
