Many thanks Ann and Jeanette.

My parents were married in St Muredach's in 1930 , but the marriage certs. of my grandparents and indeed ,G grandparents state that their ceremonies took place in the Roman Catholic Chapel in Ballina.

I assumed it would have been the same place,but thanks for the confirmation .

Kind regards,
B.

First rule I I have learned in this game---- Never assume anything !!!

Yes it is the same . Always been know as St Muredach's Cathedral.
The foundation stone was laid in 1827. The architect was Peter Madden.
The first service was in 1832 but it was only a shell at that time. It was an ongoing project for some years. There is another Catholic Church in Ballina called St. Patricks . Before the Cathedral was built the old Chapel was in Ardnaree.

Could any member researching Irish roots please tell me if this is one and the same as St. Muredach's Cathedral Ballina ? I am particularly concerned with marriage certs. dating back to 1840-1870 .
Many thanks .
