The Ritz was designed by John Bride McNeill, one of his few projects in the Republic, and completed in 1946. The Balor Theatre converted the building for their own use in 1982. Owners the Butt Hall Committee recently submitted plans to have it demolished but the council rejected these in 2015 and listed the building. As of now it is probably still empty.

Forgot to mention that McNeill’s client was William Barry.
