Appeles, what you say is generally ture but in the cqse of Fermoy it is a bit more complicated: Hodiknsons did the original scheme for the whole church ( and the plan survives in Hodkinsons archive) the Dublin Craftworkers only repainted the sanctuary. In circa 1952 everything was painted out with cheap war time suprlus paint except the angels painrted by the Craftwoerkers -which are painted on caqnvas applied to teh wall.

Do you know of any plans to digitise & create a database of the Hodkinsons archive?..A cross comparison of all these archives would lead to some very interesting conclusions I’m sure.

Ageeded totally. It would be worth talking to the propritors of hodgkinsons in Limerick. Chances are they would be interested in such a product.
