Welcome to Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Cork (Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross), Cork's Anglican Cathedral situated in the centre of Cork City, Ireland. Designed by William Burges and consecrated in 1870, the Cathedral lies on a site where Christian worship has been offered since the seventh century.  We celebrate the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the present building located on its 7th century site beginning on 30th November 2020.
