The Church of Ireland will be holding St Patrick’s Day services in the Irish language across the island on Monday, including the 10am Celebration of the Eucharist in St Patrick’s Cathedral in Armagh.
In Belfast there will be Holy Communion in Irish in St George’s Church. There will also be Irish language services in Co Cork, Kilkenny, Limerick and Killaloe on Sunday, March 16.
The services have been organised by the Irish Guild of the Church.
It was founded in 1914 to promote the use of the Irish language in the Church.
It also promotes within the Church the spirit of the ancient Celtic Church and is a focus for all members of the Church of Ireland inspired with Irish ideals.
The guild also collects from Irish sources suitable hymns and other literature and encourages the use of Irish art and music in the Church.
