St Nathy’s Cathedral to close for six months due to Refurbishment Plan.

Ballaghaderreen cathedral set for six-month closure

St Nathy’s Cathedral in Ballaghaderreen will close next month because of a €1-million refurbishment project.

Essential construction work on the listed building, which was built in the 1850s, has been planned for several months and it’s now finalised.

In the parish newsletter yesterday, the Diocese of Achonry says it’ll start at the end of September and will take six months.


The cathedral will close during the works, with Masses to be held in St Nathy’s College’s chapel and funerals in other churches in the parish.

However, the cathedral will open for Christmas and close again in January until Easter.

Father Joseph Gavigan, Parish Priest of Ballaghaderreen, explains the works being carried out include repairs to roof, pointing of stone and lighting and heating upgrade.
