Bell Ringing at St Finbarrs Cathedral

 Looking through the mists of time

Looking through the mists of time

St Finbarr’s Cathedral is a great attraction in Cork city, and. like Shandon, can be see from many parts of  the city, and it’s history goes back a long way.

In the year 606 St Finbarr founded a monastery on the site of the present Cathedral,  There is a lot of history within the site, and the present cathedral was established in1862, and many old artifacts were discovered when the older building was being demolished.

There is also a magnificent set of bells in the cathedral that have been fully restored and can be played by visitors, if you have the muscles to pull the heavy ropes to make music!

    Lovely place. An old caretaker there kept me talking for the best part of an hour once.



I would love to hear what you think!
