It cost â‚¬140 million to rebuild the Frauenkirche, this country has nowhere near that amount of money to spend on a cathedral rebuild.
Fair enough, but Longford is clearly not anywhere near as big a job.. For a start there is much more of the building left, secondly they don’t need to build that massive dome and they really took their time with the Frauenkirche, something like 12 years, I don’t think the congregation could use the gym at the college for that sort of timescale! Time is money after all..
I’d say it’s more of a York Minster than a Frauenkirche (I think the Minster cost about 4 million in the 80s)
