Ireland Pilgrimage Day 7: St. Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity College, Archbishop Brown, Oscar Wilde, Mass with Boy's Choir and More
by Steve Ray on September 28, 2012
Great day – way more than I can fit on a few minutes of video. But everyone is having a great time and all is going superbly well.
Today’s itinerary: Bus tour of Dublin, visit the Georgian Houses near Merrion Square, then the story and excerpts from Oscar Wilde by his unique statue in Merrion Square. Then to visit with the Papal Nuncio Archbishop Charles Brown, before scattering through various pubs and restaurants for lunch.
Then a tour of Trinity College and the amazing Book of Kells before visiting St. Patrick’s Cathedral which makes my blood boil since it was once a glorious Catholic Cathedral and is now just a cultural center (for all practical purposes) of the Anglican Church (Church of Ireland). Then a bit of free time before Mass with a Boy’s Choir in Dublin’s Catholic Pro-Cathedral. After that everyone had a free evening to visit pubs, shop, rest, find dinner and explore.
