Creative in Cork
The Church of Christ the King: The technologically innovative Church of Christ the King was the first concrete church built in Ireland. Commissioned in 1927 by Rev Daniel Cohalan, Bishop of Cork, this was and remains a radical building. This iconic church was designed by Chicago-based architect and former student of Frank Lloyd Wright, Barry Byrne. Its wooden ceiling makes it one of the largest suspended-ceiling churches in Europe. Opened in 1931, the church is based on the principles of Art Deco, making strong use of symmetry and geometric forms, resulting in a dramatic interior when light penetrates the concrete facade.
