Erected in the thirteenth century on a site traditionally connected with the Celtic missionary saint after whom it is named, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, is the largest church in Ireland. It suffered much depredation, both natural and man-made over the years and was finally fully restored in the late nineteenth century. This richly illustrated guide, by architectural historian Dr Michael O’Neill, recounts the vicissitudes of the cathedral’s history and guides the visitor round the many points of interest both in and outside the building, from the impressive Minot’s Tower and the elegant Lady Chapel, to Celtic grave slabs and sumptuous nineteenth-century stained glass.
