Tel: +353 (0)74 21208 At the conclusion of the ceremonies, the then parish priest, Rev. John Murray, thanked all the benefactors of the new Church. He expressed deep gratitude to Mr Anthony Carlin, formerly of Tonduff, who had made good in Cleveland, Ohio, and who had donated the beautiful High Altar and marble reredos (ornamental screen, covering the back of an altar). This gentleman's generosity was not confined to his native parish - he was also benefactor to many churches in the land of his adoption - and had bestowed upon him by the Pope the singular honour of 'Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great'. There is a stone plaque in the Sanctuary area of the Church commemorating his beneficence. (Pictured right)It may be of interest to recall the text of Mr. Anthony Carlin's telegram received by the parish priest on that occasion. It seems to throw much light on the character of the man. It read:"As an exile from Erin's green isle, I send my tenderest love to the clergy and people of my native parish, and pray that you join my heart's love with the Altar, as a Gift to Our Divine Master and Blessed Mother, and offer it up on the day of Consecration as a proof of my undying gratitude for my Irish Faith, until all are united about Heaven's own Altar - with the sons and heroes in the land of eternal peace." This tablet bears record that Anthony Carlin Esq., Cleveland, Ohio, USA, a native of Tonduff in this parish, being solicitous for the glory of God and the beauty of His dwelling on Earth, did donate this High Altar and reredos and asks for himself, family deceased, parents and relatives, the prayers of the people.
