In Galway this week the bells of St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church have rung out at seven pm for seven minutes as the Church celebrates its 700th anniversary. The rector, The Very Rev Lynda Peilow, tells us more.

About the Show
In a programme for people of all faiths and none, Michael talks with those whose life experiences cause them to call on their beliefs, as he seeks to discover what religion does for people - and occasionally to them.
With regular updates from across the world’s faiths and from those that hold them, this is a thought-provoking 30 minutes of radio.
The programme is produced by Sheila O'Callaghan, the commissioning editor of the series is Roger Childs.
