Yep it’s the same chap alright http://www.slatteryconservation.ie/ . .How could he have messed up so badly with the “restoration” of Cobh Cathedral? He seems to be highly thought of in conservation terms in Ireland :confused:
I better make that call.

Indeed, this must be the man himself. Just looking at his web page, he has some references to his work at St Colman’s, Cthedral, Cobh. He even has a photograph of the north elevation . If you look carefully, you will see those beautiful black discolorations of the stone.

As for conservation, the report compiled for the National heritage Council estimates that it will cost a million euro simply to make the the building waterproof following the effects of the “restoration” – 700 plus thousand euro on the Cathedral fabric and a further 300 plus thousand on the sacrist building. That is some restoration!
