[quote="Praxiteles"]Unless confronted with hard facts, it is practically impossible to believe that stupidity such as Mr Hedderman's exists that could produce the kind of proposals for the gutting of this fine church. Note the introduction of the silly things at the west end: gathering area, etc (all copied without the slightest hint of imagination from the American Bishop' Conference equivalent to The Place of WOrship)]


Does anyone know whther this destruction went ahead or not? No planning application appears to have been submitted to Cork County Council.

I am referring to St. Patrick's Church, Millstreet, Co. Cork. see postings no. 15 and 16.

some one has asked why the sanctuaries in Br O'Riordan's churches tend to have two doors leading to the sacristy located behind the east wall of the church. The two doors are explained by a requirement of the Roman Ritual which prescribed that for the celebration of High Mass he celebrant arrive at the altar on the gospel side (North Side) and keave the sancturay from the epistle or South side. This resilted in two doors being provided for access to the sacristy.

Ballintotis Church, Midleton, Co. Cork

Here we have a shot of Ballintotis church. Reports have been confirmed that the sacristy of this church was demolished about two weeks ago. Although this is a protected structure, no planning application was made to Cork County Council for works to be carried out to the church. The County Council has no record of any declaration having been made for works to be carried out at Ballintotis. It looks as though we are dealing with a case of the cowboys in the night - and the only way to stop that is to prosecute and seek exemplary sentencing.

ABSOLUTELY! Laws were put in place to prevent what happened in this case.

What has become of the rule of law??

The Queen's Chapel at St. James Palace.

Built 1623/1625 by Inigo Jones in the Palladian manner as a Catholic Chapel for the consort of King Charles I, Queen Henrietta Maria.

The interior, as fashioned by Jones, contained what was probably the first application of a Serliana altarpiece in the British Isles and was clearly based on the Ospedaletto in Venice. Unfortunately, the original interior is no longer extant.

Would anyone be able to locate Johannes Kip's view of the interior of the Queen's Chapel as it existed in 1688 following the restorations of 1662 and those of Sir Christopher Wren carried out in 1682-1684.

The Queen's Chapel by Inigo Jones built 1623-1625 as engraved by Johannes Nap in 1688 when it still functioned as a Catholic chapel for Catherine of Braganza, the Queen Consort of Charles II. It shows the altar piece erected 1682-1684 by Sir Christopher Wren.

The ceiling is by Inigo Jones and is one of hte few decorative elements foreseen by Jones.

It appears that three pictures in the altar piece of the Queen's Chapel are by Caracci.

It appears that the Queen's Chapel was the first chapel built in ENgland in the Palladian style.

Something of the functioning of the Queen's Chapel under Catherine of Braganza, Queen Consort of Charles II:

In Sir Christopher Wren's serliana of 1682/1684 the pictures by Annibale Caracci depict Our Lady and the Child Jesus with Saints Joseph, John the Baptist and Catherine -the last referring to Catherine of Braganza.

The Tomb of Francis I and Claude de France at teh Royla Abbey of St. Denis, Paris.

It was executed by Philibert de L'Orme and Pierre Bontemps between 1548 and 1559.

Philibet de L'Orme succeeded Sebastiano Serlio as architect to the King of France. The monumental frame for the tomb was modelled on the Arch of Septimus Severus -ehich featured inSebastiano Serlio's Quattro Libri.

The order used here, however, is ionic rather than Corinthian.

St. Lacteen's Church, Grenagh, Co. Cork

Built c. 1831 in the classical idiom and subsequently gothicised.

It has a Serialna altar piece and a retro-sacristy

Here are some views of the Altar Piece. It retains its reredos but has lost its pictures, the two votice ante-standing side altars, the original High Altar appears to have been relpaced in a marble replica (as in Dunmanway).
