St. Colman's Cathedral Mar 16, 2013
The Cathedral has its roots in the diocese of Cloyne which was moved to Cobh in 1769. At this time, the repression on the Catholic church was still subject to repressions and it was not until the 19th century when Cobh had the legal and financial possibilities to build an adequate Cathedral. Consturction started in 1867 but was not completed until 1915.

Cobh's cathedral is a typical reprensentative of British 19th century Neogothic architecture and one of the most splendid (and expensive) in Ireland. However, you will wuickly recognise that it is completely out of size for a town like Cobh. The carrillon is probably the most often mentioned feature of the Cathedral. With 49 bells, it is said to be the largest in the British islands (though 7 bells were later additions). Beside also being the only Cathedral with a carrillion in the Republic of Ireland. St. Colman's Cathedral has also the largest bell in Ireland, named after St. Colman.
