Here are the original drawins from 1911 for the completion of the spèire of Cobh Cathedral. You will notice the markings on the right hand side noting that the height of the spire from its base to the foot of the cross in 200 feet. Well, if someone would measure the height of the tower to the base of the spire and add the height of the Cross, we should have the height of the spire. Anne Wilson in her excellent study of Cobh Cathedral mentions a height of 300 feet. I have no doubt, however, that Cobh exceeds Limerick in height.
