 St. Colman’s Cathedral Centenary Exhibition At Cork Airport

For anyone travelling through Cork Airport in the coming weeks or collecting someone from the Arrivals Hall, the Centenary exhibition is not to be missed. It showcases Cobh's St. Colman’s Cathedral and some important historic events with stunning photography.

Cork Airport has an average of 15,000 passengers travelling through the airport each day and this figure is expected to reach 70,000 over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

St. Colman’s Cathedral is a Pugin designed neo-gothic architectural gem dominating the skyline of Cobh town and Cork Harbour. The construction of the Cathedral took 47 years, dating from 1868-1915.

A visit to St. Colman’s is a moving spiritual experience. The gothic grandeur of the interior, the delicate carvings, breath-taking stained glass windows, the beautiful arches and the mellow lighting combine to lift the human spirit.

The Cathedral is steeped in history and due to its maritime location it has been part of some historic events since its construction. There is so much history and beauty within its walls to capture the imagination of both locals and visitors alike.

The St. Colman’s Cathedral centenary exhibition is located in the Arrivals Hall of Cork Airport.
