Pictured from it's harbour , in Cobh, County Cork, is St. Coleman's Cathedral one of Irelands tallest buildings and seat of the diocese of Cloyne, This amazing piece of architecture looks over Cork Harbour, arguably one of the largest natural harbours in the World, in any case a great harbour and home to Ireland's only dedicated cruise terminal. Cobh benefits greatly in tourism terms from its emigration and maritime legacy with its association with the RMS Titanic. The Cathedral is a wonder of construction. Building began ni 1867 and was not completed and consecrated until 1915. The delay in construction was due to revisions of the original cost and plans, ( not unlike today's circumstances ).
