Lismore's beauty and a quilt exhibition

Last month I visited the lovely town of Lismore, Co. Waterford. Lismore is a very pretty historic town at any time, but on this day a quilt show in the local cathedral was the main attraction for me.

St. Cathage cathedral is a lovely church, located at the end of a quiet green street.


And inside it is stunning!



The weekend I visited it was also covered in quilts of an enormously wide variety. They were hung around on display stands, and covered all pews, too.


A few from the many that caught my attention:







There were also cushions, bags, and table runners.


A most unusual quilt hung right by the entrance.



Since it was a lovely warm day as well, I took some time to wander around the town and by the river, too.



I did not have the opportunity to visit well-known Lismore castle, I'll have to keep that for next time!


With thanks to Aíne of the Lismore Quilt Co. and her helpers for organising this wonderful exhibition, and giving me the excuse for a great day out!
