Clonea Power Church is by JJ Mc Carthy C. 1860 , Is very impressive in its scale and location, in a beautiful part of Co Waterford behind the Comeraghs.

Plans do no reflect the quality of the church, particularly in blanket wall to wall instillation of ” polyfloor kudos whitle marble vinyl covering ” in scanturary and side chapels and large square “polyfloor vinyl tiles over ardex surface “in nave and aisles. Description is awful enough , just think what Pugin would say. No regard given to existing floor surfaces both original and exposed or currently covered over. McCarthy favoured small diagonal red and black tles in aisles. A church of this quality would be expected to have encaustic tiles in scanturay, which is currently carpeted.

Scantuary extension into nave is unneccessary

Can anyone visit ? Plans are on Waterford Co Co website ref 09/487

Why do you not lodge an objection with Waterford County Council before the possibility of doing so expires?
