While driving through Ireland we came across this lovely old cathedra opened in 1874. It is well maintained and cared for and beautifully decorated inside. It felt a very peaceful place.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is beautiful. I wish I had been able to attend Mass, but timing was not right. This is a must see if you are visiting Sligo
