This cathedral is enormous but invite to pray. They respect social distancing. The ceiling is new thanks to a recent restoration work. At the end of Mass, the organ played; it is a big one, as large as the building !

Galway Cathedral sits on the banks of the Corrib River and is an imposing sight from most all of downtown. The interior is vaulted with stone. It stands on the former site of the Galway Jail and , when the jail closed, the land it was on was donated county to the church. A place of misery was transformed into a place of beauty and hope. It is very well worth dropping in to see between the daily masses.
