While this is NOT the exterior of a Gothic revival/restoration stone church it just may be the interior of just such a church. This appears to be one of a number of images of the same church in the archive. This one shows a beautifully clean, tidy and empty church all ready for Sunday service but where is it?
There was mighty craic with the image last Friday and may I apologise to all our Cork brethren for suggesting that their beautiful city is naught but a "hamlet" :-) And today's image is from no small hamlet either - but Down Cathedral
in Downpatrick. (Which Niall McAuley
told us with lightening speed - before our morning coffee had cooled!
