This pump, on the village green, is a typical Tonge & Taggart pump. It is a rectangular pillar bearing the name of the local council. Near the base is the inscription, Tonge & Taggart Ltd. Dublin. This appears above and below a recessed rectangular panel, within which is a roundel, bearing the words 'Made in Ireland'(in Irish). The cap looks much like a small pagoda and the finial is a fluted cup with a ball. The terminal to the handle has the shape of an acorn but the surface decoration makes it look more like a pinecone.
A short distance away, in Main Street, is a similar pump.
