A small number of people attended a special service at St Fin Barre's Cathedral in Cork city to mark its consecration 150 years ago.

Built by public subscription, the Church of Ireland cathedral was designed by Victorian architect William Burges and took 14 years to complete.

Lord Mayor of Cork Joe Kavanagh joined Bishop of Cork Dr Paul Colton for the service which was shown online.

Covid-19 restrictions have seriously impacted plans to mark the anniversary but local clergy led by Dean Nigel Dunne have come up with a number of novel ways to mark the day including inviting people to post photographs of the famous landmark using #SFB150.
