Limerick 2020 - church bells ring out!


Limerick Diocese, through Bishop Brendan Leahy, was delighted to have arranged the ringing of bells across nine city centre churches in tandem with the bell ringing at St. Mary’s Church of Ireland Cathedral, to welcome the 2020 European Capital of Culture jurors to Limerick.

The diocese wishes the Limerick Bid Team and the local authority well this week and salutes them for helping to give Limerick the incredible voice that it now amplifies proudly across Ireland and beyond.

Our thanks to all who made time and gave energy to making this idea a reality. You can view a special video of the chorus of bells ringing HERE
