It was closed that day so I was unable to see what the inside might look like.
That was rectified earlier this week when I received Louise’s latest blog.
“A remarkable example of one man’s deep love for his wife, this tiny R.C. chapel on Bridge Street in Carrick is the smallest in Ireland and reputedly the second smallest in the world. When Mary Josephine Costello died at the age of 47 on 6th of October 1877 her heart-broken husband, Edward Costello, had her body embalmed and placed in the care of the Marist Sisters in Carrick-on-Shannon. He immediately commissioned this beautiful Chapel in her memory and as a last resting place for them both.
