Due to the large numbers of Irish
people among the Catholic
population of Liverpool
, this building is also known jokingly as Paddy's Wigwam
. In fairness, it does look like a wigwam
. I much prefer Liverpool Cathedral
, but the two buildings together do add a very pleasing variety to the skyline.
Hmm. This got downvoted. I'd like to distance myself from the racist slur contained in the information I noded. It wasn't my idea - why should factual writeups suffer?
