For those interested in the work of Ludwig Oppenheimer, I would be inclined to suggest that they visit the parish church in Kenmare, Co. Kerry. It has a magnificent mosaic floor in the sanctuary which can only have been made by Oppenheimer. In many respects, it reflects the same iconographic elements as that of the Sanctuary floor in Cobh Cathedral. It is also interesting to note that the altar rail (which survives) has a magnificent brass gate by J and G McGloughlin of Dublin – the same combination as at Cobh and in the Honan Cahpel in Cork.
