The latest from Cork suggests that the Bishop McGhee of Cloyne is hell bent on erasing every single church in the county. The latest proposed vistim is the rather fine mid-19th century village church of St. Joseph at Liscarroll, near Mallow. Not surprisingly, the same team proposing the wreckage of Cobh Cathedral are now turning their eyes toward Liscarroll. The bright Fr. Danny Murphy is again leading the possé. You will remember that his “liturgical” assessment of Cobh Cathedral was heavily discredited by the London based professional liturgist, Dr. Alcuin Reid, during the Cobh oral hearing. Indeed, it was interesting to note that Murphy was not called by the developers in the Cobh Cathedral case to give evidence on their behalf – a sign of his ability to provide a reasoned argument for the twaddle he went on with to justify and rubber stam the destructuion of the Cathedral interior.

I cannot locate the architect for Liscarroll but he may have been JJ. McCarthy or a pupil of McCarthy’s.
