Croagh Patrick Wedding on Friday the 13th , American & Irish Wedding

A wedding on top of the Reek which is a rare sight and occasion. The priest was Fr John Kenny and the wedding party was from America with Irish roots, the flag I believe was supplied by Fr. John

Like a lot of churches it was cold and windy

Yes the ladies dressed up in all their finery which was no mean feat

and also the 3 bridesmaids and the bride. They carried their clothes up and changed up there …

It was great to see this wedding on Croagh Patrick as it doesn’t happen often

St. Mary’s Cathedral Tuam

Taken on the way home from Galway this evening. We don’t take time to enjoy what is straight in front of us,  I was getting a coffee in Tuam and there it is.

“St. Mary’s Cathedral is the Church of Ireland Cathedral in Tuam and parts of this building date from the 12th, 14th and 19th centuries.

This Cathedral also houses The High Cross of Tuam which was erected in the south transept of the 19th century building. St. Mary’s also houses a cross shaft which also dates from the 12th century.

The cross head from St. John’s Abbey which also dates from the 12th century is housed in the Synod Hall, the fourteenth century building.  St. Mary’s has many interesting features which include the 19th century stain glass windows by McAlister, housed in the Synod Hall and the late 19th century stain glass windows in the 19th century building, some depicting the faces of real people, one time parishioners in the Cathedral.

Major renovations took place at St. Mary’s Cathedral from 1985 to 1993 and an all new central heating system was installed during September 2000.”

Killeen Church Louisburgh Westport Co Mayo

I was working in this area and on the way to my next call saw this small church and said that’s different. It was a really dark, cold crisp night and all I could hear were the waves crashing on the rocks in the distance.

 

Killeen Church 2

and this is a good old Irish sign post,

and on the way back to my van I took this one, and it turned out better than I thought,

and here its is on Google Maps

The Reek and The Holy Trinity Church Westport

Taken this evening just before sunset of Croagh Patrick. I have taken a lot of photos of it, but its always different,

Went towards Westport to get the sun setting on Croagh Patrick but missed out, so went for an ice cream and waited till it got darker and took a few of this Anglican church its “Holy Trinity Church Westport”. Had to take them over the fence as the place was closed up
