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.
