Since the town of Lismore was founded by St. Carthage, it would really be a shame if you did not pay a visit to the famous Cathedral build in his honour. The cathedral is ingeniously positioned behind tall and impressive gothic styled gates and it includes beautiful pointed windows and ribbed circles that were inserted there in 1820. Even though it was initially a little stone church dedicated to its patron, the St. Carthage Cathedral has suffered a lot of architectural modification since it was built in 1207.
