St. Colman’s Cathedral, Cobh, Co. Cork

This index, while not complete, is an invaluable miscellany of those who worked on the building and decorating of Cobh Cathedral. It is most interesting, for example, to note the work of Patrick Scannell who supplied the altar rails in 1891/1892 BEFORE the internal walls were clad in Portland/Bath stone – had Prof. O’Neill been apprise of this chronological fact he might not have made such silly remarks about the altar rails awakardly jooining the transept wall at the Midleton Oral Hearing. If there is an awakardness here, it is the manner in which the Portland stone dressing meets the antecedent altar rail.
