Caption for Dublin, St. Patrick's Cathedral, South East 1897: St Patrick's is about 400 yards from Christchurch. It is the largest church in Ireland, with a 143ft tower (Minot's tower) of 1370. The 100ft spire was added in the 17th century by George Simple. The church was restored in 1864-69 by Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness. The site is said to be that of a Celtic Church of around 450AD, where St Patrick baptised converts. In 1901, a well was discovered in the grounds. Today it is the 'National Cathedral' of the Church of Ireland.
