Attended the 10am mass. Prior to such I explored the architecture of the Cathedral (inside and out). Impressive for just a small coastal town.

If your folks left Ireland after the 1880's, chances are this is the last thing they saw as they steamed away. It must have been very hard to leave everything behind, bad as it was.

Really worth the climb up here to catch the views. The cathedral is old but not by itself worth the visit.

Worth the visit. Church design and interior is spectacular. Amazed by the detail. Loved the carvings and the tile work. Great for photos. I also got some pics of the cathedral from the harbour. It’s a beaut.
