St. Anne’s spire in the Shandon area of Cork is one of the city’s oldest landmarks. The church was built in 1722 and is a Church of Ireland foundation. It has a facade of limestone on two sides and red sandstone on the other two. The clock face has gained notoriety as the “four faced liar,” each face once showing slightly different times. Visitors can climb the tower and ring tunes on the famous Shandon bells, from Beethoven’s Ode to Joy to Happy Birthday to You! St. Ann’s observes Anglican Communion, and all are welcome to Sunday services at 9am and 10.15am.
