More from Windele (1839) on Cloyne Cathedral:

“Attached to one of the piers, in the south range. is a handsome monument, erected to the memory of Bishop Bennett, (the friend of Parr). It was designed by W. WIlles, and executed in white marble, by J. Heffernan, both of Cork, the latter a disciple of Chantry,a nd it represents an Indian kneeling under the shadow of a palm tree, his clasped hands on an open Bible, and his face lifted up, with an expression of the most ardent devotion. The Bishop was a zealous advocate of the foreign Bible society, the result of whose efforts is here finely expressed…..

I the north transept is an altar tomb, belonging to the Fitzgeralds of Imokilly; on it are laid some fragments of a mailed figure, which had probably once belonged ot it. The Latin inscription records the death of John Geraldinis, and his son. who both died in 1612. Attached to the wall, is a monument of Dr. Woodward, Bishop of CLoyne, who died in 1794. He was the author of “The Present State of the Church of Ireland”, published in 1787,..his epitaph states that he was the advocate, in his place in the House of Peers, of Catholic Emancipation. At the same side, is a mural monument to Bishop Warburton, another bishop of the See, who died in 1826.
