The Church of Ireland in Limerick city will be celebrating the traditions and legacy of Ireland’s inland waterways through story and song with a special free concert at St Mary’s Cathedral from 8pm on Friday 3 May.

Radharc na hAbhann will be held in aid of the Amy Mulcahy Fund for the girl seriously injured in a rowing accident this past February, and is one of many events scheduled in the city as part of Riverfest Limerick over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

And the musical evening will be followed by a special ecumenical prayer service in the cathedral on Sunday 5 May at 11.15am, organised by Dean of Limerick Niall Sloane, Rev Edna Wakely and priest Curate Paul Fitzpatrick.

“As a boater and a swimmer I am also a current avid and committed user of the Shannon and her incredible waterway,” Fitzpatrick says. “For most of my life I have savoured appreciated and respected this incredible gift we treasure.”

This prayer service is open to all faiths and none, and will also celebrate the life, times and history of the people of Ireland’s inland waterways.
