ST MARYS CATHEDRAL AND GRAVEYARD – SEPTEMBER 2021
When I arrived in Limerick the forecast was for rain within an hour so I rushed to the Cathedral in order to photograph it before the weather changed for the worse. There was no rain and the weather was beautiful for the rest of my visit
The Cathedral is one of the oldest buildings in Limerick and stands right at the heart of the medieval city. Originally the Royal Palace for the Kings of Thomond it was gifted to the Church in 1168. St Mary’s is an extraordinarily complex building representing developments from the mid-twelfth century to the later twentieth century – a treasure of Irish religious art.
