St. Colman Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cloyne, located in Cobh, Ireland. The architects were Edward Welby Pugin and George Ashlin, who commenced construction in 1867. When Pugin died in 1875 Ashlin took on the services of a Dublin architect, Thomas Aloysius Coleman to assist him in the completion of the project.
Malahide Castle, parts of which date to the 12th century, lies, with over 260 acres (1.1 km2) of remaining estate parkland (the Malahide Demesne Regional Park), close to the village of Malahide, 14 km north of Dublin in Ireland. The estate began in 1185, when Richard Talbot, a knight who accompanied Henry II to Ireland in 1174, was granted the "lands and harbour of Malahide". The oldest parts of the castle date back to the 12th century and it was home to the Talbot family for 791 years, from 1185 until 1976, the only exception being the period from 1649–60, when Oliver Cromwell granted it to Miles Corbet after the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland.
