Stelrad radiators warm Irish congregation…

There’s a very special Catholic Church in County Tipperary, Eire, that’s basking in the relative warmth of a new heating system courtesy in part to the selection of a number of Stelrad’s popular Concord Radiators.

The Parish Church of Carrickbeg – St Molleran’s Church – incorporates remnants of a 14th century Franciscan Abbey – and prior to the new heating system was a little draughty as is the case with many churches across the UK and Ireland. It was originally built in 1827 on the site of the Abbey and dedicated to Maol Odhrain – anglicized to Molleran – the patron saint of Carrick-on-Suir, found just to the north of Carrickbeg.

The new heating system was part of a E700,000 renovation and refurbishment project that saw the church restored to its former glories with refurbishment and reroofing in a project that took eight months to complete. Carrickbeg and Windgap parishoners flocked to the newly revamped church at the top of Friary Hill with Father Tom Flynn, the parish priest and declared themselves delighted with the warm and welcoming improvements that had been instigated. The whole project was overseen by Project Manager Jimmy Flynn and the heating engineer was Michael Allen.

Stelrad’s Country Manager Ireland is Brian Hennessey: “It was a great little project to be involved in and we were delighted that they went for the Concord design radiators to make the whole heating system just a little bit special. We understand the congregation is very happy with the warmth in the church now – they’re not having to wear coats, scarves and gloves throughout the services anymore!”
