church bells

  • Yesterday was a St Patrick's Day like no other, with no public Masses, no parades or concerts and no bars or pubs open to celebrate the national holiday.

    Church bells rang out across the Archdiocese of Tuam at the request of Archbishop Michael Neary, in support of Irish people and home and abroad affected by coronavirus.

    Archbishop Neary said the ringing of church bells in unison across the country on our national saint's day was a simple reminder that the Church stands with, and supports, the people during this public health emergency.
