Limerick Cathedral

The misericords of Limerick Cathedral, St Mary’s.


When I saw the misericords, they were in the displayed in the north transept.

There are 21 misericords from the 15th century.


The cathedral, dedicated to St Mary, the Blessed Virgin, was founded in 1168 on land donated by Donal Mor O'Brien King of Munster.  Part of an existing palace may have been incorporated into the fabric of the cathedral - The great West Door is traditionally believed to have been the main entrance to the palace.

Cromwell and his cohorts performed their normal misdeeds, when in 1651 they captured the city, amongst other things they used the cathedral as a stables for the horses., this mercifully was only short lived.

At some point, probably in the 19th century, the choir stalls, with their misericords were removed from the main body to the church, and stored in the crypt, but thankfully they now see the light of day in the north transept.  It is also worth noting that Limerick Cathedral has the only set of misericords still to exist in Ireland.

Lie most cathedrals, St Mary’s has been modernised throughout the centuries, into the currently prevailing styles, however, there is far more that is original than in many other cathedrals.
