The Cathedral Restoration Committee

The Cathedral Restoration Committee – that indefatigable and redoutable body – returned changes of directorships to the Companies Registration Office on 2 September 2009. The papers are available for an extremely modest fee allowing extensive democratic review of the charitable status permitting relief from public imposition on the funds of this hyperactive body.

The present documentation tells us that on 30 November 2008, William Christopher Twohig resigned as a director of the restoration Committee.

He was followed on 28 May 2009 by Mons. James O’Doonnell with immediate effect.

That vacancy was followed on 29 July 2009 by the departure of Mons. Denis O’Callaghan, who, it will be recalled, was impulsive enough to committ his musings on the Cathedral wreckage to paper -along with other unfortunate hallucinations- in a rambling book entilted “Hand to the Plough”.

This reminds us of Poobah’s line in the Mikado: “The won’t be missed”.

The question now arises: how many can possibly be left to depart? The restoration Committee has been plagued by “departures” and even more plagued by the most glaring lack of “arrivals” – not counting a brace of “arrivistes”. Clearly, not only is it proving difficult to find respectable business people to come and stroll this particular deck of the Hesperus, it is becoming clearer that, like Hecuba’s progeny: amplius non sunt. What ever it is, membership of this committee brings with it a sort of fatal commercial progeria which will -indeed, must, result in resignation. The Erinneyes flail: more must go – more will go!
