Saint Brendan's Cathedral Museum is a treasure house of Celtic Renaissance Art. Stained glass includes work by A.E. Child, Michael Healy and Evie Hone. H McGoldrick and Patrick Pye have also designed single works in the Cathedral. The stations of the cross are a fine example of E Rhinds work in opus sectile, while the corbels, baptismal font and the nave capitals were carried out by Michael Shorthall. The metal work lamps in the nave, the chalice and the candelabra were designed by WA Scott, the architect who replaced the original designer WH Byrne. He is also responsible for the benches with their small grotesque carvings on the end panels.
