ST PATRICK'S CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL, ARMAGH - 360 Degree Video Experience - Northern Ireland - NI
There are different historical places in Northern Ireland that we could recommend for all those coming to visit this country. One of these different places is St. Patrick's Catholic Cathedral Church that is located in county Armagh and which dates back to 1840 when the first steps in building it were taken and which was completed in 1904.When this church first came to life, it was aimed to serve as the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Armagh, which was the original Medieval Cathedral of Armagh of St. Patrick which was then transferred to the Protestant Church of Ireland at the time of the Irish Reformation.In addition to the history of the church and the different stages it has gone through, it is important to mention that one of the things that also make this historical church one of the touristic locations in Northern Ireland is the view that it manages to offer the visitors since it is located on Sandy hill (which almost took 60 years) along with its Anglican counterpart, which will in turn give them the chance to view Armagh town as a whole from above.The different stages that the building of the cathedral has gone through also included the pause it went through and which happened during the Great Famine in Ireland, after which the cathedral was then completed and came to life. St. Patrick's Catholic Cathedral was built in the Gothic Revival Style and has been completed using mainly Irish materials and workmanship - which is considered another thing the Irish people should be proud of.
