St Patrick Cathedral  (Roman Catholic)
The present Catholic St. Patrick's Cathedral in Armagh, Northern Ireland was built to replace the medieval Cathedral, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh, which had been retained by the Church of Ireland since the Protestant Reformation. It is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of All Ireland. The Cathedral stands on a hill, as does its Anglican counterpart, and has twin spires.
