At the top of the lectern is the ox, which is the symbol for Luke and
underneath it is the lion, which is the symbol for Mark. Then there is
the symbol of the eagle, which represents John, and finally the man is
the biblical symbol for Matthew. The sedilia (the priest's chair) behind
the ambo depicts the Good Shepherd.

The O'Shaughnessy family also gave the sculpture of the
Risen Christ that is behind the main altar. This piece was carved from
a root system of bog pine, which has been extinct in Ireland for 1,700
years. The main altar is made from a combination of sycamore and ash.
Facing the congregation, there is a carving of a pair of hands holding
the bread of life. To the right of the altar, is the presidential chair.

The tabernacle was also carved from a root system of bog
pine. The outer door of the tabernacle contains a panel of stained glass
that survived the fire in 1998. It is one of the few remaining artifacts
from the old church. There is a small stained glass window on either side
of the tabernacle.
On the right hand side of the tabernacle there is a statue of Mary and
Child while on the left of the tabernacle there is a statue of St Joseph.
The church pews were designed and produced by Nolan Products of Newcastlewest,
