Electrical fault blamed for church bells sounding late at night on Saturday

Anyone living in the town centre may have been kept awake on Saturday night by the church bells of St Patrick’s going off.

The bells of the local cathedral began to chime shortly before 11.30pm and lasted approximately an hour leading to many disturbed sleeps for nearby residents.

An electrical fault has been blamed for the bells ringing throughout the night with apologies expressed for any inconvenience caused.
