Though it was not built until more than a thousand years after his death, this cathedral is named after St Colman, bard poet to the King of Munster, who founded this diocese in 560 A.D. Designed in Neo-Gothic style by the architects Pugin and Ashlin, the Cathedral remains an awesome testament to 1860s architecture. Unsurprisingly, with a 2468-pipe organ and 47 bells making it the largest carillon in Ireland, the cathedral is often used as a venue for concerts and recitals.
