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



  1. Thank you for the virtual quilt show this morning! Great scenic pix too.

  2. A beautiful setting for those quilts. and green and peaceful in the whole area too.

  3. Thank you for the lovely quilt show. I liked best #64 and the medallion quilt. So beautiful there.
