Cathedral Church of St Anne
Belfast Cathedral dates from 1899. It was built to replace the older late 18th century parish church of St Anne which had been a gift to Belfast from Lord Donegall. It is said that the reason he called it 'St Anne's' was in honour of his wife, although Anne is also the name that is traditionally given to the mother of the Virgin Mary.
A £14,960 Cornerstone grant was awarded to fund urgent repairs to fix cracking in the walls of the Cathedral Church of St Anne and to safeguard heritage and enable the church to better serve its community. Funding for the grant comes from the Department for Communities Historic Environment Division's Covid-19 Culture, Languages, Arts and Heritage Support Programme.
