The Cathedral of Saint Mary and Saint Anne (Irish: Ardeaglais Naomh Muire agus Naomh Áine), also known as Saint Mary's Cathedral, The North Cathedral or The North Chapel, is a Roman Catholic cathedral located in Cork, Ireland. It is the seat of the Bishop of Cork and Ross, and the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cork and Ross.

History[edit]

The cathedral was dedicated in 1808, but was extensively damaged by an act of arson in 1820.[1] George Richard Pain undertook the restoration of the cathedral.[1] In 1964, the sanctuary of the cathedral was extended, a sanctuary tower added, and the internal layout reorganised.[2]

The most recent large-scale works were completed at the cathedral in 1996.[3] The tower and sanctuary were renovated and refurbished, the roof was re-slated and the gothic ceiling was repaired. External stonework of the cathedral was also repointed.[2] The cathedral closed for the duration of the works.
