St Colman's Cathedral, Cobh
The Cathedral Church of St Colman, usually known as Cobh Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral. It overlooks Cork harbour from a prominent position. Construction began in 1868 and was not completed until 1919.
The architects were Edward Welby Pugin and George Ashlin; construction began in 1868. When Pugin died in 1875, Ashlin took on the services of a Dublin architect, Thomas Aloysius Coleman, to assist him in the completion of the project.
Cobh
Cobh, known from 1849 until 1920 as Queenstown, is a tourist seaport town on the south coast of County Cork. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only cruise terminal. Tourism in the area draws on the maritime and emigration legacy of the town. It was associated with the RMS Titanic & RMS Lusitania.
On a high point in the town stands the cathedral church of St Colman's, which is one of the tallest buildings in Ireland.
