St. Patrick's Cathedral

St. Patrick's Cathedral Cathedral Church of St. Patrick is one of the most ancient Christian sites in the British Isles. St. Patrick built a stone church on the hill known as Druim Saileach in 445, so beginning the story of Armagh Cathedral. He ordained that Armagh should have the pre-eminence over all the churches of Ireland, a position which it holds to this day. Here a House of God has stood for over 1500 years, though in the course of Ireland's troubled history it has been destroyed and rebuilt on at least seventeen occasions. It is far more, however, than an interesting relic or a monument to the persistent faith of our fathers, for God is still worshipped here daily, and men and women gather within its walls to confess the faith of Jesus Christ, the Crucified, Risen, Ascended Lord.

In 1872 as a result of the disestablishment of the church, St Patrick's became a national cathedral for the Church of Ireland and is used by the state for ecumenical services.
