latest Poll Results: Longford Cathedral should be
rebuilt faithfully as to its pre-Vatican II design 43.42%, rebuilt as before the fire 15.79%, rebuilt in a modern style 18.42%, left as a ruin 22.37%
Has there been any word on the fate of the altar and pulpit which were in the crypt.. ?
Also – what were the statues in the niches around the cathedral made of? I have a suspicion that the only 2 to survive were on the back sanctuary wall. Since the marble altars and panelling have held up to a certain extent, I can only assume that the statues either fell, or were made with a material that basically shattered or burnt in the heat.
