Saint Patrick's Cathedral
National Gallery
Saint Patrick's Cathedral has contributed much to Irish life throughout its long history (it was founded in 1191). Jonathan Swift was Dean of Saint Patrick's from 1713-45, during which time he expressed his "savage indignation" at appalling social conditions in Ireland. He was also Dean when Handel's "Messiah" received its first performance (1742) sung by the combined choirs of Saint Patrick's and Christ Church Cathedrals. "Living Stones", the Cathedral's permanent exhibition, celebrates Saint Patrick's place in the life of the city, its history, and its role at the dawn of the third Christian Millennium. It emphasises that the Cathedral is not a museum but a building embracing the past to herald the future.
