Indeed. It has to be one of the most soulless churches in the city on account of these works. What a travesty.

That would be the very last impression you would be left with having read Christine Casey’s description of the church in The Buildings of Ireland: Dublin (2005) page 134. Indeed the good lady tells us that “In the simple eloquence of its design and the qualty of its materials, the Bath stone INTERIOR is among the finest in Dublin!” !! – no less. With the use of the present tense in this description, Praxiteles wonders whether the good lady has recently seen this interior or whether she is referring to some latter day ashling? Or, is she simply listening to Cathal O’Neil?
