It wouldn't matter what condition the bricks were in if it was rendered properly.

Put a request on Post a Job for a (local to you) builder/plasterer who specialises in external rendering to visit you and to give you some professional advice but it looks like to me it would need going over again with another coat.

Regardless the condition of the bricks were in at the beginning, It appears that you will need to apply another coat as this has not been done correctly initially. I would advise you hire a skilled plasterer but obtain quotes allowing them a site visit to view the job.
