2018 marks the 850th anniversary of the founding of the Cathedral and an exciting programme of events is planned, including a celebration of the various institutions within the city, including Sport, Tourism, Commerce, Health & Education.
There will also be a focus each month on a figure associated with the Cathedral, as well as Mission project to support and encourage local charities and causes in the Limerick area.
During the month of May we celebrate Limerick Arts & Crafts and an exhibition on Limerick Silver and Lace has been brought together to showcase and highlight some of the indigenous crafts to the City of Limerick.
Limerick silver is considered one of the most valuable hallmarks in the country and Limerick lace is highly regarded across the world.
Most of the silver is in the possession of the Cathedral, under the auspices of the Treasurer (the Rev’d Canon Jane Galbraith) who forms part of the Cathedral Chapter.
The lace is kindly on loan from Limerick Museum and Limerick City Trust and Limerick is grateful to two bodies for their generous support in particular, Dr Matthew Potter and Mr David O’Brien.
The exhibition runs for the month of May.
