Historic and spectacular cathedral also known as Cavan Cathedral

Also known as Cavan Cathedral, this Roman Catholic cathedral is located in Cavan town. With its 68m spire and flanking domes, this is one of the most impressive and eye-catching buildings in the town. Completed in 1942 the vast interior is shaped like a basilica and extensive use is made of different colours of marble. The cathedral houses many fine examples of ecclesiastical art and is neo-classical in style with a single spire. The portico consists of a tympanum supported by four massive columns of Portland stone with Corinthian caps. The tympanum figures of Christ, St Patrick and St Felim were created by the Dublin sculptor, Edward Smith. The twenty eight columns in the Cathedral, the pulpit on the south side and all the statues are of Pavinazetto marble and came from the firm of Dinelli Figli of Pietrasanta in Italy.
