One of the main reasons for our visit to the Isle of Lismore, off the west coast of Scotland in May 2016, was this little whitewashed church, The Cathedral Church of Saint Moluag, known as Lismore Parish Church. Luckily there is a very good information board which gives some details and have I also added some extra details. There will be a following post on the graveyard, unfortunately or fortunately, however way you look at it, at the moment, we are very busy at work, so this is a very visual post of the church 🙂
The Cathedral Church of Saint Moluag was built in the 14th century and attributed locally, by tradition, to ‘The Roman’ or ‘An Roimhanach’. Six stained glass windows, two modern by Mitton. Eight medieval carved slab-stones, said to be of the ‘Loch Awe’ school are now in a protective shelter. Traditional baptismal font is carved in a natural rock surface in the graveyard. Piscina and triple sedilia are a lovely feature, the floor now 0.6m higher than in mediaeval times.
