Photographer's Note

St Patrick’s

This is not the first time I show a picture of the interior of a St Patrick’s Cathedral, but the other was taken in Manhattan rather than Dublin. Seen here is the choir of St Patrick’s Cathedral in the Irish capital of Dublin.

Contrary to its counterpart in New York City, the one in Dublin is not catholic, but is the National Cathedral of the Anglican Church of Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Cathedral (Irish: Ard-Eaglais Naomh Pádraig) is largest church in the country. It was founded in 1191 and joined the Church of Ireland during the English reformation in the late 1530s. Between 1713 and 1745, writer and satirist Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver’s Travels, was Dean of the cathedral and his grave is also found in the cathedral.

There’s a photo of the cathedral’s exterior and the 43m-tall spire in the WS, taken from the adjacent St Patrick’s Park.
