The "Sing Limerick" event continues with an evening of choral singing by 6 groups from Ireland and one from Pensacola Florida, The Pensacola Childrens Choir. Amazing setting and amazing performances.

A lovely 19th century cathedral, with some beautiful stained glass and a beautiful Pipe Organ, which is used on Sundays for Mass, with the choir at 12 noon. A variety of church music is sung, from contemporary to classical and plainchant.
