Here is an example of Stroik’s restoration work where he has undone the unfortunate which took place during the 1980s.

Two comments and a question

The detail of the panelling under the alter doesn’t seem to gel together.

  • The quatrefoil in picture 16 is not well defined – although a standard design it looks too “open” for this instance – framing a panel, not a window.
  • Instead of using simple arch motifs in the flanking panels the squashed quatrefoil fails to impress.

As for the reinstatement of the alter rail, this goes against current church practice.

Finally, what has this got to do with Irish catholic churches?

ONQ.
