Local Attractions - Cathedrals

The Cathedrals in Cavan are all architecturally important and many have interesting histories or features. 
 
The Cathedral of St. Patrick and St. Felim is the most dominant building in Cavan town and the 224 feet high spire with flanking domes can be seen for miles. This Catholic cathedral was finally completed in 1942 after being delayed by the outbreak of World War II. The vast interior is in the style of a basilica and extensive use is made of different colours of marble, some of which came from Carrara in Italy.  The cathedral houses many fine examples of ecclesiastical art.
 

A Church of Ireland cathedral is located in nearby Kilmore and it is also dedicated to St. Felim. A tree lined avenue leads to the 19th century Cathedral and the earlier late medieval cathedral which it replaced. The Cathedral itself, which was designed by the English architect, William Slater, dates to 1860 and features attractive stained glass windows depicting biblical scenes. The famous romanesque doorway into the cathedral dates to the late 12th, early 13th century and is believed to have originally been part of the nearby priory at Trinity Island in Lough Oughter.
