The Honan Chapel - Gallery Collection

Image TitleHonan Chapel: period photograph of the west grille
DescriptionThis photograph was published in Sir John Robert O´Connell´s guidebook to the chapel entitled The Honan Hostel Chapel Cork: Some Notes on the Building and the Ideas which Inspired It (Guy & Co., Cork, 1916). O´Connell clearly understood the power of photography to popularise the chapel and its collection. The iron grille was designed by William A. Scott and was manufactured by J.& G. McLoughlin, Dublin. The design incorporates a large Celtic cross. This item was removed from the chapel in 1983. This item has been comprehensively examined by Virginia Teehan & Elizabeth Wincott Heckett in The Honan Chapel: A Golden Vision published by Cork University Press in 2004.
