Architecturally one of the finest churches in Cork city, the church was dedicated for worship on 29 June 1866. After an architectural competition was held in 1859, E.W. Pugin was awarded the commission to design the church even though he was not the winner of the competition.

It replaced an older church, built in 1786, which was entered from Carey’s Lane and known as Carey’s Lane Chapel. Sadly the proposed spire was never completed. The high altar was designed by George C. Ashlin and executed by Samuel Daly. In 1875 a new pulpit, again designed by Ashlin, and sanctuary stalls were added.
