Clarecastle Church

This fine large statue of St. Bridget stood on a wall plinth to the left of the Main Altar in the Church. It does not appear in a photograph of 1906 so it must have been placed in the Church after that date. Following changes Vatican 11, this and other statues were removed, as well as major work to the Altar, the Healy Window etc.
