Stop 11 - Christ Church
Christ Church Cathedral - Christ Church Place
Christ Church Cathedral was the original cathedral of Hiberno-Norse Dublin, founded c.1030 by King Sitriuc. It's bishops were for a time subject to Canterbury, but were incorporated into the Irish church at the synod of Kells in 1152, when Dublin became an archbishopric. The nave, in the Pointed style, dates from about 1230 and is very striking. Strongbow, the Anglo-Norman adventurer who conquered Dublin and married Aoife, daughter of the King of Leinster, is buried here.
