St Colman's Cathedral,

Cobh, County Cork, Ireland

St. Colman’s Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cloyne, located in Cobh, Ireland. The architects were Edward Welby Pugin and George Ashlin, who commenced construction in 1867.[1] When Pugin died in 1875 Ashlin took on the services of a Dublin architect, Thomas Aloysius Coleman to assist him in the completion of the project. The Clerk of Works was Charles Guilfoyle Doran who supervised the project until his death in 1909, when the cathedral was almost complete.[2] The cathedral was finally consecrated in 1915.

The cathedral contains the only church carillon in the Republic of Ireland, and with 49 bells is one of the largest carillons in the British Isles. An automated system strikes the hour and 15 minute intervals while it also rings the bells in appropriate form for Masses, funerals, weddings and events. The carillon is also played on special occasions and generally every Sunday afternoon by its current carillonneur Adrian Gebruers.source - Wikipedia

Very nice detail and well composed. I like how the top is starting to disappear in the mist. "V"
