The Church of St. Barrahane, Castlehaven, Co. Cork

The sanctuary in this church is distinguished from the nave not by architectural features but by decorative elements, notably, the paint scheme in the sanctuary and by the glazing of the sanctuary windows.

At the back, there are two very finely crafted confessionals in the classical idiom -almost certainly from the Pro-Cathedral in Skibbereen.

It is to be hoped that someone in the Cork County Council heritage department – which is certainly not distinguished for its Wissenshaft – will realize the importance of this country church and ensure that it will not be subjected to depradation or liturgical nonsense. Perhaps we should employ the Skibbereen Eagle to turn its haughty gaze for while on the County Hall.
