Photographer's Note

The Cathedral of St. Patrick in Dublin.

This cathedral is dedicated to St. Patrick the patron saint of Ireland. Due to the Annals of Ulster, a historical reference about Ireland's medievial history St. Patrick lived between 373 to 493. The cathedral is placed in a location close to which St. Patrick is said to have baptised people in early Dublin.

Also the famous writer and satirist Jonathan Swift (Gullivers travels) was dean here in the 18th century and his grave is in the cathedral.

The grey granite stone used for this building I found very common for churches and other historical buildings of Dublin. An interesting detail is the celtic cross on top of the forefront building.
