The Ghost of Bishop Jebb



The photo is a statue of Bishop John Jebb found in the church of St Mary's Cathedral in Limerick, Ireland.  Not sure if this is still a Protestant church.  It may well be.  Though I doubt it.  After the much hated Oliver Cromwell captured Limerick, the church became a stable for the parliamentary army.  The present state of the church is sad.  It needs a lot of repair work but money is scarce.  It is very depressing.  Even the church staff we talked to looked depressed.   I gave her some money for the church.  She was pleasantly surprised.  

As for Bishop Jebb, not much is written about him.  He was the made bishop of Limerick in 1882.  I imagined that he probably liked to shoot pool.

Hope your day is going well.
