Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral was commissioned in 1172 by Strongbow, Anglo-Norman conqueror of Dublin and Archbishop Laurence O'Toole. It replaced an earlier wooden church built by the Vikings in 1038. At the time of the reformation, the cathedral passed to the Protestant Church of Ireland. By the 19th century it was in a bad state of repair, but was completely remodelled by architect George Street in the 1870s. In the crypt are monuments removed from the cathedral during its restoration.
