It was built on a difficult site and required elaborate foundations. It is memorable for its striking location and and wealth of detail. Cobh witnessed the farewells of many thousands of emigrants. It was a major British Army and Naval Base. The emigrants would have seen the many miltary buildings erected for them. They would then have sailed past the prison on Spike Island. As they headed towards Roches Point they would have seen the Cathedral silhouetted against the sky. Then they would have turned towards the open sea and a new life. The sentimental and historic value is the essence of this church and the origional features should remain intact.
Viva la Cork.
