The Church of St. Joseph, Fornaught, near Donoughmore, Co. Cork

This church preserves the remains of a serliana altar that clearly came from a much bigger church. The serliana in Fornaught has been scaled down to fit the church and none of the architrave was rebuilt here. Investigations have, so far, failed to located the church in which this feature was originally erected.

The tatty banners ought to be removed from the lecterns in St Joseph, Fornaught. It strikes me as a peculiarly Protestant and Protestantizing characteristic to display words, words, words, and more words. It suggests an appalling ignorance of iconography and likewise betrays a distinct lack of taste as well as of imagination.

Pity the clergy of Ireland lack proper instruction in sacred art and architecture. ACCOUNTABILITY????
