  • Magnificent building, stunning high altar with wonderful acoustic for singing. Well worth a visit, just 10 mins from town centre.  more »
  • While driving through Ireland we came across this lovely old cathedra opened in 1874. It is well maintained and cared for and beautifully decorated inside. It felt a very peaceful place.  more »
