Also known as the South Chapel, St. Finbarr’s South is a lovely Catholic church that dates back to 1776. Consequentially, it is the oldest Catholic church still in use in Cork City.
St. Finbarr’s South was originally constructed in an L shape, though in 1809 it was extended and became a cruciform structure. Inside, the altar boasts a beautiful sculpture of the Dead Christ created by Irishman John Hogan.
