Fire at Holy Cross Church, Kenmare.

The fire that occurred on Monday last (23rd April 2018) broke out on the Gallery over the Entrance Porch.  The fire damage that was localized there included damage to a Stained Glass Window. The remaining parts of Holy Cross Church have been heavily soiled with soot and smoke debris.

The resultant works required include cleaning the entire church, localized electrics and full redecoration of the church.  

The initial clean-up commenced on Wednesday last.   While the church will remain closed this weekend, we hope to have it available next weekend  and future weekends thereafter.  

 The major works to be undertaken are envisaged to take between 6 and 7 weeks. 

Further progress up-dates will be provided as the work proceeds.
