This is one of the most beautiful and hidden places in Cork City. Check out the fascinating story of its founder Arch Deacon John Murphy "Black Eagle of the North". His story is almost too fascinating to be true!

We happened upon this church tucked in the middle of the center of Cork. Beautiful inside and out - we would recommend a stop by anyone walking by.

A beautiful Pugin masterpiece set up a short step from the busy shopping area. A good place to take in the wonderful design and architecture while having time for some quiet contemplation

Grand church squeezed on a small piece of land. Came when they were having mass and the songs filling the church was just beautiful !!

We like churches and this was a beautiful Gothic church. The interior was interesting and the light coming through the windows was gorgeous.

The church is nicely decorated with some stunning stained glass. I did expect it to be a bit bigger though.

I must see! Beautiful sight to see in the City of Cork. Nestled in Paul's street shopping area, it is a wam and inviting amazing sigh to see. The detail, architecture, and stained glass is impressive
