Since moving to the Rectory in Askeaton, Co Limerick, I have enjoyed visiting cathedrals, churches and church buildings in Limerick city and county, writing about them and photographing them.

As the months move on, it has become difficult for some readers to find these postings on this site, and so this posting offers links to these and similar postings.

I intend to update this list as I write about more churches and buildings, indicating the date of the latest update at the end of this posting, and to provide an additional link in the toolbar in the banner at the top of the front page of this site.
