Description

The so-called St. Patrick's Cathedral or Skibbereen Cathedral is Roman Catholic church which plays the role of parish church in Skibbereen, a town of Ireland. It belongs to the Diocese of Cork and Ross. The church, designed by architect Michael Augustine O'Riordan, was built between 1826 and 1830 in neoclassical style. The tympanum of the facade is topped by a belfry. The interior is also neoclassical, but has an uneven appearance due to tunneling in transepts. The Tabernacle had an altarpiece of the Irish painter Samuel Forde, now preserved in the church of St. Barrahane in Castlehaven.
