The Honan Chapel - Gallery Collection


Image TitleHonan Chapel: detail of capitals flanking the west door
DescriptionHenry Emery of Dublin was assisted by apprentices from the Cork Technical School in the carving of the stone capitals of Munster saints: St. Colman of Cloyne; St. Gobnet (Gobnait) of Ballyvourney; St. Declan of Ardmore; St. Finbarr of Cork; St. Ita of Limerick; and St. Brendan of Kerry. The doorway is built in a series of orders, that is, several concentric rings each set back behind the one in front, each supported on their own columns. Each order has an individual style of ornament. The Honan Chapel has three orders; the main order has a chevron design. The middle order has a bead and pellet ornament with a zigzag and saltire pattern on the outer order.
