The outside space between the new door from the ambulatory of the Cathedral to the new door into the side porch of St Mary’s will soon be sheltered by a bronze canopy. This will be hung from a beam extending from Holy Trinity Cathedral.
In the next few weeks, if you see a crane sitting in St Mary’s Court from Parnell Road, it will be lifting this new canopy into place. The canopy itself will weigh in the region of 1 tonne.
This bespoke canopy has been designed by Fearon Hay Architects and manufactured by Sheetmetals Ltd in their Mt Wellington workshop.
The photos show it nearing completion in the factory.
