St. Coleman’s Cathedral

A new low-key intervention into St Coleman’s Cathedral, Cloyne provides much needed toilet and tea station facilities, allowing the greater use of the church to better serve the needs of the church and the local community. This sensitive conservation project was the result of constructive discussions and agreement between the church community, Cork County Council Planning Department, the Heritage Office and Cork County Councils conservation officer. The design consists of two timber boxes which sit internally, one on each side of the main entrance.

Location: Midleton, Co. Cork.
