An Early Valentine Postcard of Armagh Cathedral

The foundation stone of Armagh Roman Catholic cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Primate of All Ireland, was laid on St. Patrick's Day 1840 by Dr. William Crolly, Archbishop of Armagh. At midday on Easter Monday 1854 a grand ceremony took place to celebrate the re-commencement of the building work, which had been halted during the years of the catastrophic Irish Famine and its aftermath. By ten thirty the building was already filled to capacity with vast crowds, not only from the town and neighbourhood of Armagh, but from districts further afield. It is estimated that some six thousand people were in attendance. The chancel, where the high altar and sanctuary were situated, was temporarily roofed over with canvas. The rest of the church had no roof, but its canopy was a brilliant blue sky. A choir from Belfast assisted at the high mass.

At midday, the clergy entered in procession from the vestry, preceded by acolytes, and occupied the stalls fitted for the occasion. These were followed by students from St. Patrick's College, Armagh. Then followed the deacon, the Rev. Mr. Gologly, and sub-deacon, the Rev. Mr. Crinion, robed in vestments of cloth of gold. After them was borne the primatial triple cross, attended by acolytes with lighted tapers. Next came the assistant high priest of the mass, the Rev. Patrick Hanratty, administrator of Drogheda, robed in a magnificent vestment of rich embroidery. Finally the Most Rev. Dr. Dixon, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of all Ireland entered, attended by his chaplain, with the Rev. B. Hughes and the Rev. J. Powderly as masters of ceremonies.

Among the other clergymen within the sanctuary were: Rev. Francis McGinnity, Dundalk; Rev. Mr. Quinn, Parish Priest Moneymore; Rev. J. Quinn, C.C. Markethill; Rev. Mr Irwin, Parish Priest Kilmore; Rev. Mr. Donnelly, C.C. Kilmore; Rev. Mr. Quinn, C.C. Tynan; Rev. Mr. Fitzpatrick, C.C. Lower Creggan; Rev. Mr. Murphy, Parish Priest Beragh; Rev. Mr. McParlan, C.C.; Rev. Mr. McCooey, C.C.; Rev. Mr. McDonnell, Parish Priest Donoughmore; Rev. Mr. Daly, Parish Priest Stewardstown; Rev. Nicholas Hughes, C.C. Lordship; Rev. P. McMahon, Parish Priest Tydavenet; Rev. Mr. Hughes, Rev. Mr. McKenna, and Rev. Mr. Smith, Monaghan; Rev. Charles O'Brien, Parish Priest Aughala; Rev. Mr. McMullen, C.C. Aughela; Rev. John Keating, Parish Priest Loughall; Rev. John Rafferty, Armagh; Rev. Mr. Quinn, C.C. Loughgall; Very Rev. Doctor Slane, Dungannon; Rev. J. McCrystal, Dungannon; Rev. Mr. Quinn, Dungannon; Rev. Michael Lennon, Crossmaglen; Rev. Mr. Lamb, Parish Priest Lower Creggan; Rev. Mr. Campbell C.C. Armagh; Rev. Mr. Campbell, Parish Priest Tandragee; Rev. Mr. Rooney, Parish Priest Ballymacaul; Rev. Mr. O'Toole, C.C. Ballymacaul; Rev. Mr. Crolly, Parish Priest Portadown; Rev. Daniel O'Toole, C.C. Portadown; Rev. Mr. Kelly, Parish Priest Keady; Rev. Mr. Byrne, C.C. Keady; Rev. Michael Coyne, Parish Priest Moy; Rev Mr. Breslan, C.C. Moy; Rev. M. Daly, Parish Priest Upper Killeavy and others.

The preacher on the occasion was Rev. Henry J. Rorke, S.J. of Gardiner Street, Dublin, one of the most distinguished pulpit orators at the time.

That evening the clergy who has assisted at the solemnities of the day, the reverend preacher, and his Grace, the Lord Primate, attended a sumptuous meal at the Charlemont Arms Hotel.

The cathedral was finally dedicated on 24 August 1873.

Funding for this most magnificent of buildings was by way of subscriptions and donations, held at local and national level. Surprisingly, there were also collections made abroad, as the following subscription list for Canada in 1857 would indicate. The vast majority of the surnames are Irish, but the list also includes some French and English names. Most of the donations were registered in dollars, but some were in sterling, with one donation by Michael McDermott of five francs:
