St. John’s Cathedral


Cathedral Pl, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • Built in the late 18th century, this Gothic Revival cathedral boasts one of the tallest spires in the country, at 280 feet tall.
  • Constructed from locally sourced limestone, the spire was innovatively built using internal scaffolding only.
  • This site was one of 23 venues for the 31st edition of EVA in 2007, curated by Klaus Ottmann (b. 1964, Germany).
  • St. John’s Cathedral was one of numerous sites for a project by Miriam Lohan (b. 1975, Ireland), titled Ringing Limerick. On 7 May 2007, between 11:15am and 11:45am, the artist organised 13 churches around Limerick city to ring their bells simultaneously.
  • This performance was recorded and available to listen to after the event.
