Editor’s note: The old Catholic Church in Athenry was built in the form of a cross and the main aisle was divided in two. The left side was for women only and the right side was reserved for men.
Each side was also divided into groups of seats for those who belonged to individual Sodalities or Confraternities. Each section had a banner / flag at the edge or the pew!
