The Sacred Heart Chapel in Cobh Cathedral

The magnificent mosaic floor, by Ludwig Oppenheimer, depicts the triumph of the Cross of the Lamb over death and evil represented by the asp, basilick, the lion and the dragon.

The inscription on the central roundel is taken from Paslm 90 verse 13: super aspidem et basiliscum ambulabis et conculcabis leonem et draconem.

This is an example of the kind of work about to be destroyed by Cathal O’Neill’s proposals for the so called re-ordering of the Cathedral.
