Re: Re: Cloyne Cathedral Church of Ireland
Lawyer – the cathedral isn’t generally open, but I think you can get a key at the cottage on the left as you go in the gate (you used be able to anyways). The round tower across the street used to be open to the public also – but I think it’s been off limits for a while. The graveyard is interesting too, if you’re into that kind of thing.
For reference, the oldest part of the building is generally reckoned to be the south transcept, its been walled off for a long time, but as far as I can remember some sources claim it to be 12th century. I have some local history books at home, if there’s anything of note in them I’ll fire it up here at some stage.
And Johnglas, I’m afraid I’m a little baffled by your concern at the ‘presumption’ involved. That is the historical name of the organisation. Would you prefer if they changed it to ‘A Church in Ireland’ to help make you feel less oppressed?
