Opportunity for Prayer


Saint Mary’s Cathedral was founded in 1168 AD. Now over 850 years old, it continues to be a place of prayer and pilgrimage for all who enter our doors, and it is a symbol of faith, hope and love to the city of Limerick. The clergy and people who worship here belong to the Church of Ireland, but everyone is welcome to attend.

Worship App

The Choir (interested in auditioning?)

Saint Mary’s Cathedral Limerick has a multi-denominational choir, who on a weekly basis sing for Sunday Services. From medieval to modern, together with hymns and traditional canticles, the music is always enjoyable and inspiring.

Under the musical direction of Mr. Peter Barley, the choir is currently auditioning for new members (Click here for more information), so we invite you to join us and continue this ancient singing tradition.
