Photographer's Note

This cathedral is formally known as the National Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St. Patrick's Dublin. The original, wooden church on the site, which was outside the walls of Dublin, was raised to the status of cathedral. The present building, the largest church in Ireland, was built between 1200 and 1270, though a major rebuilding in the 1870s, necessitated by the belief that the cathedral was in imminent danger of collapse, means that much of the current building and decoration dates from the Victorian era. Even the day I photographed it, there was some repair being done to the steeple of the tower and unfortunately it has to be part of the photograph.
