TY Architectural Studies Tour

TY Architectural Studies Tour


As part of Architectural Studies module our TY students went on a tour of our local St. Marys Cathedral. Fr. Niall Howard along with their teacher Mr. D O Sullivan gave a historical and architectural tour of the building. Students saw first hand the beauty in the detail and appreciated even more the success in building such an engineering challenge at a time when Ireland was on the brink of its lowest point. Foundation stone was laid in 1842 just before the Irish Famine. Students also got some time to sit, reflect and visualise what the interior might have looked like before its dramatic interior change done in the early 1970's. After this reflection they voted unanimously that the change was for the better. We would like to especially thank Fr. Niall for his contribution on the day. As always he is so prepared and gives so willingly of his time.
