St Nicholas’s Collegiate church has seen many changes in the city over the hundreds of years it has stood guard over the street, but is about to experience a new one with the announcement this week that its new rector will be the first female to hold the post.
Last month Galway Diary explored the sham legend that grew around the so-called ‘Empty frame’ on the wall of the Lynch’s Chapel, or Lady’s chapel, in the historic St Nicholas’ Collegiate church. The late Canon George Quinn pronounced that this was the very frame in which the Bishop of Clonfert, Walter Lynch’s sacred icon of the Madonna and Child once hung, before he was forced to flee just before the arrival of Cromwell’s soldiers in April 1652.
It is perhaps an indication of how Ireland was cut off from the rest of the world that no one here knew about the painting of the Virgin and Child, and its miraculous ’tears of blood’, that Bishop Walter Lynch brought with him to Gyor* in Hungary, in the middle of the 17th century.
It has been 45 minutes since the announcement — we are relaxing with tea in an upper room on the second floor of Galway Cathedral and the new Bishop is sitting there, taking it all in, flanked by the men who announced him to the world.

It might have been the undercard, but the minor final was entertaining and as brilliant for Galway as the latest crop of minors came up trumps against the odds, with a brilliant fearless display of hurling in Croke Park. It couldn’t have started worse for them with Brian Turnbull finishing the ball to the back of the net inside the opening 15 seconds of the game and the same man slotting over a pointed free two minutes later to leave Galway four points down and under serious pressure.
Coming to the Town Hall next Wednesday, September 6, is wickedly funny comedy To Hell in a Handbag, written, and performed by Helen Norton and Jonathan White and exploring two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest – Miss Prism and Canon Chasuble. A governess and a country rector; models of Victorian propriety in public, but in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity, and money that offers a subversively funny new take on a theatrical classic.
