St. Peter's Cathedral, Belfast, County Antrim

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Peter
Became a Cathedral in ??

The Roman Catholic Cathedral of Belfast is hidden amongst the housing estates of the lower end of the Falls Road and is hardly on most people's tourist routes.  A slight shame as the Cathedral is quite large and rather impressively proportioned, with it's two elegant towers.

Sadly when Andrew visited the interior of the Cathedral was inaccessible, so he could only look at the outside.

The Falls Road area is the most avidly Catholic part of West Belfast, and as such is an area where religious tensions have been high in the past, not an area to wear orange and a bowler hat.
