Christ Church Cathedral, Waterford City

This 18th century cathedral in Waterford City is considered one of Ireland’s finest neoclassical Georgian structures. The current building replaced the original Neo Gothic cathedral built by Bishop Cheneix. Some of its most appealing features include Corinthian columns and the elegant yellow paint color, trimmed in white with intricate floral and laurel designs. The cathedral’s windows are made of clear glass only, as the bishop at the time of construction was not fond of the traditional stained glass. Christ Church Cathedral was designed by John Roberts, who also created Holy Trinity Cathedral, as well as many other buildings in the Waterford City area. The two churches are collectively known as the Holy Trinity Cathedrals, Christ Church Cathedral is a nickname.
