Chris Church Cathedral

By Pat Liddy · Illustrations: Patrick Donald

The inner core of late medieval Dublin was a comparatively small area hedged in by impressive walls, fortified by 32 sturdy towers and gateways. Among the cramped streets and crowded laneways of wooden houses and wattle cabins stood at least ten stone churches. The grandest of these was the Church of the Holy Trinity, now more commonly known as Christ Church Cathedral. Built on the highest point of the hill around which Dublin was strategically located, it soared above all else. Nothing was allowed to be higher than the principal house of God!
