A very accomplished interior at Fermoy; I hope there is no question of this being sold off or ‘deconsecrated’. With a minimum of intervention, this could easily be restored to virtually its original state.
Incidentally, I’ve now come to the conclusion that the flimsy ‘second altar’ in this kind of situation is best left as just that, to make clear what is still the ‘high altar’ (although an antipendium would give it a dignity it currently lacks). It also seems to me an irony that while some uber-trendy ‘liturgists’ seem obsessed with an ‘antiphonal’ layout, it is not implemented here, where the seats college-wise would be very appropriate!
PS Any images of the gothicised parish church?
