History

Other side of St Finbarres

Medieval Cathedral

A Medieval Cathedral was situated on the site prior to the 18th Century one but few traces of it are visible, this cathedral was damaged during the siege of Cork in 1689/90 when it came under fire from the nearby Elizabeth Fort. When the steeple was demolished in 1865 a 24-pound cannon was discovered, which now is on display in the current building.

18th Century Cathedral

A small classical building was constructed on the site in 1735 by Bishop Peter Browne and was demolished in 1865 to make way for the present cathedral, the entrance gate however was left intact and is stll present on the site.

Present Cathedral

The cathedral at night

Architect William Burges began work on the present Gothic Revival cathedral in 1862. Construction started on the cathedral in 1865 and in 1870 the unfinished building was consecrated. Construction was completed on the building in 1879 with the completion of the towers and spires.

Burges gifted a Resurrection Angel, made of copper and gold leaf, which is located on the pinnacle of the sanctuary.

The 2nd Cork (St. Fin Barre's Cathedral) Scout Troop, Scouting Ireland are a prominent feature of the local community.

The Organ

The Organ Console

The Organ was built in 1870 by William Hill of London, with 3 manuals and 40 stops. The action on the Great was some form of pneumatic action (possibly Barker Lever) on the Great, and tracker for the other two manuals.

The instrument was then overhauled in 1889 by the Cork Organ-building firm, T.W. Megahy, who added three new stops, though it is not entirely clear which these were. It was at this time that the Organ was moved from the West Gallery down to a Pit in the North Transept, where it still sits today.

The next major overhaul of the instrument was in 1906 by Hele & Co. of Plymouth, who added a fourth Manual (the Solo). By this stage, the action of the organ was entirely pneumatic.

The last time major work was done to the organ was in 1965-66, when J.W. Walker & Sons of London rebuilt the instrument. They overhauled the soundboards, installed a new console with electropneumatic action, and lowered the pitch to 'standard' C = 523./3. The organ now has 4 manuals, 56 stops, and 3012 pipes.

Currently, Colin Nicholls is Organist and Master of the Choristers.
