Last evening my wife and I enjoyed a beautiful carol service in the Cathedral.  Unfortunately the Church was only half-full.  Normally it’s hard to find a seat.

I know the Dominican also had theirs yesterday and I believe some other church(es) too. 

Still, it’s sad that so many of our townspeople prefer to pay homage at The Quays or Buttercrane.
