Just read The-Chris contribution. I think he has missed the point.
While this thread certainly could have pointed out a number of examples of Bishop Magee’s paucity with the truth and his lack of transparency in dealing with the attempt being made to wreck the interior of Cobh Cathedral, it has not done so (cf. the documentation contained in the book “Conserving Cobh Cathedral”). Instead, it has concentrated on conservation issues, art history, the neo-gothic revival, and on various comparative studies within the neo-gothic revival movement. There is no mention of a Magee in Didron, for example.
Not knowing John Magee as well as The -Chris, I would be reluctant to say that his hesitation to venture out amongst his own flock can be reduced to a single factor. It would perhaps be best for the bishop to explain that himself
As for those lucky enough to be admitted to his presence, we leave it with them to savour the scintillating brilliance of the bishop’s wit.
