Christ Church Cathedral – Dublin, Ireland

Christ Church Cathedral - Dublin, IrelandChrist Church Cathedral was built in 1172, commissioned by Strongbow, who was an Anglo-Norman conqueror of Dublin and Archbishop of Dublin, where a wooden church built by the Vikings in 1038 was standing.

A list below shows a few things that you shouldn’t miss, if you visit this Cathedral: (fee)

  • Strongbow monument – I guess his body is not inside it, but his remains are buried in the cathedral, and a smaller monument placed next it may be a part of his original tomb.
  • Chapel of St. Laud – The heart of St. Laurence O’Toole is displayed in a casket.
  • Crypt – The Mummified cat and rat displayed in a case on a wall. They were found inside an organ pipe in 1860′s.
