Just kidding 12 years of Catholic school and having Irish blood will cause that.
A rather unique structure from this angle. It appears much taller then its floor space seems to warrant. Any
story behind it ???

Thank you Michelle and Avril.

LOL, Jack, this is the elusive "Anglican" Catherdral. A rare sight in Catholic Ireland. :-)
Seriously though, pelt a stone in any direction and you either hit a ruin or cathedral, or better yet, a ruined cathedral.
No idea about the reason behind the height to floor space ratio, I just know that the interior was very elaborate with very high ceilings. Deb Harder has a lovely shot up of the ceiling over the alter.

Wow, Stacey - what an exceptional capture and presentation here of this beautiful old Anglican cathedral!! I just love *everything* about this image...but especially the moody lighting and sky!! :o) As my brother-in-law, John, said above, our surname might just give you a clue as to our Irish heritage!! I happen to have some on my side of the family, too!! ;o)
