These photos are from our archive and show St. Mels Cathedral in 1925 while it was being Decorated by J. Hodkinson & Sons Ecclesiastical Decorators , Limerick , under the management of Louis Hodkinson. It had been previously Decorated by Louis’s father , James , in 1886. On both these occassions the Cathedral was richly decorated with stenciled designs and gold leaf work, all of which had been painted over in later years. Some of this work can be seen in the interior photo below , on the ceiling, and also in previous photos of the sanctuary, pre vatican 2, posted earlier.
REPOSTED PHOTOS as previous were not that clear.
