Cathedral joins National Heritage Week
The rich Christian traditions in this community have shaped the heritage of Mullingar. The recent celebration of the International Eucharistic Congress gave us an opportunity to explore the events of the past and how, in particular, Mullingar took part in the 1932 international gatherings in Dublin.
National Heritage Week runs during 18 - 26 August 2012, with a wide range of events and exhibitions both nationally and locally. Click here for a complete listing of heritage attractions available this week in Westmeath.
For instance, an introduction to the artefacts of the Diocese of Meath will be presented by Kitty Murrin at the Cathedral Museum on Saturday 18 August at 11.00am.
There will be guided tours of the Cathedral of Christ the King by Ruth Illingworth on Tuesday 21 and Thursday 23 August, beginning at 2pm and lasting for 2 hours.
