Due to the highly flammable nature of hand sanitiser the votive candle shrine in Louisburgh church is not in use at present. There have been reports of incidents in different places with people’s hands catching fire while lighting candles, due to the high alcohol content in most sanitisers, 60% or more to be effective in killing a virus.
An electronic votive candle shrine has now been installed in Louisburgh Church to accommodate those who wish to safely ‘light a candle’.
Please use the hand sanitiser before you use it.
