Photographer's Note

Shot taken today of a cathedral i pass every other day in work and always meant to capture it. I loved the sky in the shot because it turned out to be an almost cobalt blue, thanks to no clouds and a glorious day.

The present Catholic St. Patrick's Cathedral in Armagh, Northern Ireland was built to replace the medieval Cathedral, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh, which is in the hands of the Church of Ireland since the Protestant Reformation.

It is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. The foundation stone was laid on St. Patrick's Day, 1840 but the Irish Potato Famine halted construction work, which was only able resumed in 1854.

The Cathedral stands on a hill, as does its Protestant counterpart, and has twin spires.
