Karen:


There are places of worship for many denominations in Athlone town including three Roman Catholic Churches (St. Peter & Pauls, St. Marys and The Friary), one Church of Ireland Church, one Methodist Church and a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Here is a link to St. Mary's which has quite a history.
