Refurbishment of St Agnes Church, Crumlin

St Agnes Church commands a significant presence in the village of Crumlin. Designed in the Hiberno Romanesque style, the main nave was built 1933-35. Transepts and Aspe were added in 1942. The Sanctuary was rearranged in 1975. Little work has been undertaken in the intervening years. In a 16 week period from June 2013, refurbishment and renewal works were completed to enrich the spiritual experience of the congregation.

The refurbishment included reordering of the sanctuary and resetting the altar podium, provision of new altar furniture and liturgical art commissions, restoration of existing artwork, new side chapel and reconciliation room, insulation of roof space, under floor heating, new flooring, new public facilities, refurbishment of pews and narthex, general redecoration, new lighting, enhanced disabled facilities and new entrance forecourt.
