Cathedral embodies spirit of outreach in community

Editor's Viewpoint

St Macartin's Church of Ireland Cathedral in Enniskillen has been at the centre of the worst of times and some of the best times in the Fermanagh town. It has a long and distinguished history, always with a spirit of outreach.

The finest example came in June 2012 when the Queen walked from the cathedral across the street to the Catholic St Michael's parish church.

Two Taoiseachs - Enda Kenny and Leo Varadkar - attended Remembrance Sunday celebrations and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher visited shortly after the Poppy Day IRA bombing which killed 12 people. Even that horror did not irrevocably damage the town's community relations.
