A new Matt Talbot shrine has been erected in the Cathedral of SS Peter & Paul, Ennis. A specially commissioned picture telling the story of Matt’s life was created by local artist Noreen Flynn.
It tells of Matt’s whole life, his struggle with alcohol, of poverty, theft as he stole to buy drink, and destitution. It also shows a journey of conversion, and how prayer changed Matt’s life, and how he offers hope to all struggling or sharing in the life of addictions.
