Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St. Nicholas

Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St. Nicholas Review

On Nun's Island, which forms the west bank of the River Corrib beside the Salmon Weir Bridge, stands Galway's largest Catholic church, dedicated by Cardinal Cushing of Boston in 1965. The cathedral was built on the site of the old Galway jail; a white cross embedded in the pavement of the adjacent parking lot marks the site of the cemetery that stood beside the prison. A calm and peaceful spot, especially appealing to church-lovers.
