Killearnan Free Church - interior
This shows the interior of Killearnan Free Church prior to its conversion into Tore Art Gallery.
As Clare says "We have not had to make any substantial changes to this impressive and historical building for its new role as a gallery. The original floor had a severe slope towards the pulpit - apparently if you inadvertently dropped your pan-drop during the service, it ended up at the front pew! The floor has been replaced with a level one, which may prove more practical, and the pulpit has been preserved. The pews have all found good homes and we now have a beautiful open space filled with natural light from the high windows each side and the rose windows either end."
