THIS IS THE OFFICIAL SITE OF ST COLUMB'S CATHEDRAL, LONDONDERRY
Built in 1633, St Columb's Cathedral is the
Mother Church of the Diocese of Derry and
the vibrant Parish Church of Templemore.
As you enter through the gates there seem to be very few headstones,
it's only when you get closer do you find that the majority of graves are marked by flatstones,
mostly from the mid to late 19th century.
