The Dean of Raphoe, the Very Rev Arthur Barrett, has unveiled plans for a major renovation of St Eunan’s Cathedral in Raphoe which will cost an estimated €650,000. 

The details of ‘Renovation Project 2020’ for revealed for the first time publicly at an event in the Cathedral Hall in Raphoe on Friday evening at which a new, specially commissioned short film about the cathedral was premiered and a fund-raising campaign launched to help pay for the improvements. 

It’s proposed that the renovations will begin just after Easter in 2020 and be completed by the end of October. Dean Barrett says an extensive programme of works is required and the cathedral will have to close for seven months, with services switching to the nearby Cathedral Hall.
