The Clare Heritage Centre Museum in Lahinch, County Clare, Ireland | Museum
The award winning Heritage Museum is housed in what was once St. Catherine's Church, which was built in 1718 by a first cousin of Queen Anne. The circumstances that moulded the character of the people over one hundred years ago are interpreted in an absorbing story.
It is also an appropriate setting for some fine sculptural exhibits - the original Tau Cross, also the Martyrdom of St. Sebastian. Sir Frederick Burton, a former Director of the British National Gallery, was a native of Corofin, and some colour reproductions of his more famous works are on display.
