Destruction in Ireland

I've been recently in Ireland in a small town called Tullamore (yeah, the famous Tullamore dew). I went to hear a Holy Mass on Sunday and I was expecting to see a fine example of traditional Irish Catholicism, but instead of Irish stubbornness I discovered a parish destroyed by ultra-modernists. Well, as a minimum the interior of the Church was brutalized quite unscrupulously. I took a couple of pictures to show this barbarity to the world, so here it is:

      Theotokos, the mother of God? Street lamp? Psychedelic vitrine? Abstract art in its best....
A cross without our Saviour; how typically Protestant! Why the so called "progressive" Catholics have to destroy every traditional representation of Jesus and his saints in places of worship? Since when is the burned Cross a Catholic symbol? The only organization I can think of is Ku Klux Klan......
Why is Judas (far left) included among the Apostles? The idea probably was to remind us, that not everyone who participates in the Holy Mass will be saved. While I can understand such reasoning, I very much question the necessity of his presence in the sanctuary. As far as I know, this is practice unknown in the tradition of the Church.
   1970's street lanterns and half-empty seats in the Church...it's quite a depressing view....
