On Thursday 21st October Bishop Fintan Monahan consecrated the Columbarium in the Cathedral of SS. Peter & Paul Ennis. This is the first Cathedral in Ireland to have a Columbarium, a place where the cremated remains of loved ones can be interred.
Eternum Columbarium is the company that provides this facility for churches and the Columbarium was installed by local builders, Michael Clancy and Michael McInerney. The Columbarium in the Cathedral has a capacity for 240 urns and 104 niches have already been reserved. The first internments of ashes at the Columbarium will take place on 6th November.
