Beautiful old Church located in lovely Sligo. If you are ever there this is certainly a must see part of Irish history.

Sligo Cathedral is worth a stop...prayerful, colorful, spacious and centrally located for some midday peace or 2 hour adoration..

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.
