Dublin's top two cathedrals, Christ Church and St. Patrick's are in fact part of the Church of Ireland; not the Catholic Church. This is mainly due to the long tangled history of the Irish and Great Britain. Additionally, they both had wealthy families backing their restorations, the Guinness family for St. Patrick's and the Jameson family for Christ Church.

Trying to find a way to capture these churches is a challenge. Beyond the impressive scale of the things by looking closely one can notice the complexities of how they are built.

Dublin Castle sits on the site of the original Viking fortress where Dublin was founded. The English ruled from here for 700 years. The Norman tower is the last remaining part of the original castle the rest being built over the centuries to suit its various functions. To see so many different architectural designs as part of one complex offers nearly endless possibilities for photography.
