St. Finbarrs Cathedral

St. Finbarrs Cathedral

Built in 1865, the cathedral remains one of Corks most famed landmarks. The cathedral is based on the William Burges French gothic style design. Burges gave the cathedral a Resurrection Angel, made of copper and gold leaf as a gift and it is located on the pinnacle of the sanctuary. There is a local superstition which states that if ever the angel is to fall from the roof of the Cathedral, this would signify the end of the world.
