Sam Hutchison has travelled extensively in Ireland to gather the information that is contained in this fascinating book. His photographs make identification easy and are an encouragement to have a copy readily available no matter where one might travel in Ireland. This is not a comprehensive catalogue but rather a personal collection which provides an introduction to the variety of monuments and memorials that are to be found in Church of Ireland churches. They reflect various times and social styles. Many are simple and some are pretentious. Some show very fine sculpture and dramatic emotion and many are illustrative of the life and work of the individuals commemorated. Soldiers, seamen, architects, musicians, writers and clergy are all represented.
This collection should alert us to the potential loss of important monuments where churches are under threat of closure. The stories that lie behind the monuments can be particularly poignant and remind us of earlier times in Ireland.
The Light of Other Days: A selection of monuments, mausoleums and memorials in Church of Ireland churches and graveyards and those who they commemorate.
