The Honan Chapel - Gallery Collection

Image TitleHonan Collection: red maniple
DescriptionThe maniple was an ornamental vestment in the form of a band which was placed on the left arm in such manner that it fell in equal length on both sides of the arm. It was worn only during Mass. It was common to connect this vestment with the bonds which held the hands of the Saviour. This vestment is made of silk and wool poplin with gold metal and silk braid. It features an embroidered Celtic cross. This item has been catalogued by Virginia Teehan & Elizabeth Wincott Heckett in The Honan Chapel: A Golden Vision published by Cork University Press in 2004. The vestments are in storage and are in need of conservation.
