St Marys Cathedral Killarney

Designed by the famous neo-Gothic designer, Pugin, the foundation stone of St. Mary’s Cathedral was laid in 1842. Building was suspended during the worst period of the Great Famine, when the partially completed building was used as a shelter & hospital for the sick and dying. It was not completed until 1855. Killarney’s Cathedral is reputed to have been one of Pugin’s favourite buildings.
