The magnificent south transept window of St Canice’s Cathedral is in need of major repairs, and the church is attempting to raise funds in order to carry out the works.

The window depicts the life of King David including a scene of David and Goliath. It was built in 1870 by Mayer & Co, from Munich (one of several windows made by the company in the Cathedral). The window itself consists of two separate lancets measuring 7m x 790mm and above the lancets in the gable is a separate quatrefoil window surrounded by a six-foil window.

A pop-up shop in aid of conservation funds, and for the round tower, will be held over two days in a vacant store in Newpark Shopping Centre on August 16 and 17. The shop will be open on the Friday from 12pm till 6pm and re-open on the Saturday at 9.30am.

There will be a huge selection of household items, books, toys, clothes and a shoe section. All are welcome.
