A Rowan tree has been planted in the grounds of St. Macartin’s Cathedral, Enniskillen to mark the forthcoming launch of a new book about its history, “St. Macartin’s Cathedral:' At the Heart of the Community.”

The tree was planted by Mr Sam Morrow, author of the book, following Morning Service on Sunday, 3rd November.

The Rowan tree leaves and berries are symbolic of the name Macartin meaning “Son of the Rowan Tree”.

The book which spans 400 years of history will be launched by the Bishop of Clogher, Right Revd John McDowell on Wednesday 13th November at 7.30pm in the Cathedral Hall and everyone is welcome to attend.
