St. Nicholas


Now from the Galway Whiskey Trail to the Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas where, according to legend, Christopher Columbus once worshipped.


The church now sees use by two orthodox congregations as well as the Church of Ireland.

  2. Never thought there is such a huge difference, language-wise. I once had to deal with a customer, he was an Italian, working in Ireland. It was difficult, but manageable...

  3. I wonder what Christopher Columbus was doing in Ireland? And very interesting and surprising to know that the same church is used for Romanian and Russian services.

  7. I think Columbus could travel anywhere, so why not in Ireland ( but not in Finland... :).
    The "signpost jungle" is fantastic...
