One of the side altars in this fine cathedral, is dedicated to the Mother of Perpetual help, and here we have the ladies again, posing in front of this beautiful setting.
This cathedral was opened in 1965 by Cardinal Cushing of Boston,and was built on the site of the old British jail.The money to fund the construction was collected mainly from the contributions of the local people of Galway, and monies raised from our friends and relatives in the USA.
This picture shows the view of the cathedral from the other side of the altar.
Galway's main river, the Corrib, flows directly in front of the cathedral, and here you have, an up-river view, showing the salmon weir, which controls the flow of this river, and also allows the salmon to swim upstream during the spawning season. The Corrib river and lake, have always been wonderful fishing waters.
Tomorrow i will hopefully be back again, with my extra three ladies, bringing our total number up to eight, plus me, and who knows, i may even have a few names remembered for you by then.
Come along with us and enjoy.
If you wish to learn more about my tours, please send me an e-mail, or give me a call, and we can take it from there. It is not to early to enquire about next year, and remember, i operate on a "first come, first served" basis.
