Blitz 80 – Cathedral ‘Goes Dark’

Belfast Cathedral will 'go dark' tomorrow evening (Thursday 15th April), joining Belfast City Council

and City Hall as we begin to mark the 80th anniversary of the #BelfastBlitz

Extract from Cathedral Magazine – May 1941

‘Six of our churches are gravely injured – two of them hopelessly ruined. Our Cathedral has wonderfully escaped serious damage. Many windows were broken and minor injuries caused. The escape is the most remarkable as bombs fell close beside it.’’
