The Schola choir from Clongowes Wood College SJ singing at the ecumenical Evensong in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen to celebrate the life of Blessed John Sullivan SJ. The saint taught in Clongowes for many years and served the poor of the area with love and his gift of healing. For the first half of his life he was a member of the Church of Ireland and would have sat in these very pews in this Cathedral, as a pupil of Portora Royal college in Enniskillen.
