DescriptionThe high altar is made of a single slab of Cork limestone. The tabernacle is inspired by a early Irish reliquaries. In 1916 a communion rail of Cork limestone separated the chancel from the nave. It was decorated with arches and chevron patterns. It was removed in 1983 to accommodate the re-ordering of the liturgical space. The arcading in the nave is inspired by Cormac’s Chapel at Cashel, Co. Tipperary. The arcading on the north and south walls of the nave consist of shafts of polished Castleisland red marble with carved caps and moulded arch stones.
