And just in case Tom Sullivan thinks that Brother O’Riordan was not “that familiar with the opus of Andrea Palladio notice the following pictures:

1. The Santissimo Redentore in Venice built by Palladio 1576-1591. Note the string course cornice running along the lateral wall between the Diocletian windows, across the facade, to opposite lateral wall (1&4).

Brother O’Riordan repeats this feature at the springing of the window arches in his churches at Kinsale (2), Skibbereen (5), Ovens and Bantry (3). Note the string course running between the windows of lateral walls and across the facade to the other lateral wall.
