Cathedral of Christ the King
The Mullingar skyline is dominated by the imposing Renaissance style Roman Catholic Cathedral which was completed in 1936. Constructed in the form of a basilica, the Cathedral of Christ the King has twin towers and a dome. Wonderful mosaics by Russian artist, Boris Anrep are on display.
The cathedral, which boasts a beautiful modernised Renaissance style, is the seat of the Bishop of Meath. Inside, visitors can pass through the Ecclesiastical Museum that contains many historical artefacts including vestments worn by St. Oliver Plunkett and a ring once worn by Marie Antoinette and models of the area’s church buildings from the 17th Century to the present day.
