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.

Staff are friendly and willingly share stories of the cathedral's history. Stunning architecture with curved ceilings, turrets and beautiful stained glass windows. Free to enter, but they do appreciate donations.
