The Dromod company created 18 timber candelabra surrounds for Notre Dame Cathedral in 2014 and are hopeful that having seen pictures of the inside of the church today, it appears the furniture has survived the blaze.

Managing Director of the company Gavin Duignan told Shannonside FM that “history states that Notre Dame Cathedral has withstood revolutions and 2 world wars so we have no doubt that the people of Paris will reinstate this international landmark once again to its former glory”.
