The beautiful and historic Saint Patrick’s Cathedral has a rich history. It was elevated to collegiate status in 1192 when John Comyn of the Church of Dublin conferred the honor upon it. Originally one of the four Celtic parish churches of Dublin, it later served famous members of English nobility as a Chapel to “The Most Illustrious Order of the Knights of Saint Patrick” - an organization that was founded by King George III. The highlight was in 1842 when Prince Albert became a knight, sealing his loyalty to the King and joining the ranks of noble Irish families. With such fascinating stories woven into its walls, this building has become an archetypal image for those who revere tales of knights and knighthood.
