The church is hidden behind the Courthouse and has a very plain exterior but the mosaics inside are beautiful. If you are in the area drop in.

This is a red bricked domed church a few minutes away from Cork's main street, just behind the columned courthouse in Washington Street. It's a prayerful place with lots of side altars, not very old. It's owned by the Franciscan Friars.

While in town recently I decided to visit St Francis church. It was very quiet and peaceful. The mosaics are spectacular and interesting. It is an easy accessable church. I enjoyed my short visit there and will definately return again.
