We visited Ireland in September, 2016 and stayed in Limerick for 5 days including a Sunday. In looking for a church to visit for Sunday morning services we found this lovely Church. It is very "photogenic" from the outside and the inside was very nice.

Historical church with an active parish and wonderful community in attendance. Walk there, go inside & light some candles.
