St Fin Barre is reputed to be buried on the site of this beautiful building. It was designed William Burgess in the French Gothic style, replacing a much smaller and insignificent building. The foundation was laid in 1865. The sain glass windows represents the New and Old Testament and the rose window represents the creation. There are many fine examples of beauty there including the pulpit , the baptismal forn and the choir stall. I face there is somethink attractive to be seen in any part of this majestic building. The great organ has been recently restored.
The Cathedral is not a museum piece but a home of worship to a thriving congregation with services held each day. The best time to visit is for the Sunday Morning Communion Service at 11.15 am and Choral Evensong at 7 pm. At both the excellent choir sing.
