The Anglican Churches are deliberately less elaborate than their Catholic counterparts, as is this compared to st Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral.

Great building steeped in history with beautiful grounds. Walk round and discover the walled garden with fruit trees, roses and herbs. Well worth a visit.
