Galway Cathedral Live Crib

The Galway Cathedral Parish’s annual live crib will take place at Galway Cathedral on Thursday, 15th December 2011 from 11:30am to 4pm.

The Live Crib, which has been a great attraction for over 12 years, consists of a traditional nativity scene set among live animals in a specially constructed, life size crib. This wonderful Christmas tradition is performed by members of the Cathedral parish and families from the city and county who play Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus, with choirs from local schools singing Christmas carols throughout the day.

Parish priest, Canon Peter Rabbitte comments, “We welcome all ages, schools, communities and religions to come and visit our live crib which brings the story of Christmas to life”.

Located outside at the Salmon Weir entrance to the church, admission is free. For more information, log on to www.galwaycathedral.ie
