From PARISH OF DROMORE by Fr. Andrew McMahon

From this evidence, and from what has been remarked earlier, it would seem safe to conclude that whatever edifice had been inherited from the medieval era, Dromore's Cathedral was not in a very solid state by the beginning of the seventeenth century. Bishop Theophilus Buckworth eventually succeeded Bishop Todd and began the reconstruction work in 1613. He commented in 1622 that the Cathedral was "almost new building, covered, glassed and in part furnished with seats." From this it is difficult to determine to what extent any of the older building may have been incorporated into the new. The "almost new building" might suggest some carryover from before. On the other hand, it may be merely referring to an entirely new building project not yet complete. Buckworth went on to undertake the construction of a Bishop's Palace in the vicinity of Dromore but had not yet completed it when rebels struck at Dromore in 1641. The unfinished palace, the rebuilt Cathedral and town of Dromore were heavily damaged as a result of this assault. The Cathedral had to wait for restoration until the episcopacy of the famous Anglican divine Jeremy Taylor.
