Little Treasure in the Middle of Ireland

16 Oct 2013

Corlin are delighted to have completed the re-decoration works to the Church of St. Carthage in Raha, County Offaly. This is a beautiful, quaint, small Church that has to be accessed by walking through a field from the road. It is still in service but it holds extremely high Conservation and Heritage value which is easily gauged from speaking to James Howley the Architect who has an vident passion for the project.

This area is an ancient area of worship with a Church being on this site for well over a thousand years now.

We are delighted with how the job has turned out and congratulations go to Norman Sproule, the Contracts Manager, Barney Doherty the Foreman and to Mark Hoynes and Eugene Carlin who worked on it. The feedback from the design team has been very positive and we very much hope that the Parish and the congregation are as happy with the finished product and that the Church goes on in service for another millenium and more.
