    July 4, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    Ramya & the boys got up to a late start barely making it to breakfast before it closed - just another typical vacation morning.😴

    Today's itinerary includes a visit to St Patrick's Cathedral and Kilmainham Gail with some time for playtime at Merrion Sq and dinner.

    St Patrick's was built between 1191 and 1270 & is the largest church in Ireland. However, it is not the seat of a bishop, as the Archbishop of Dublin has his seat in Christ Church Cathedral. Since 1870, the Church of Ireland has designated St Patrick's as the national cathedral for the whole of Ireland, drawing chapter members from each of the twelve dioceses of the Church of Ireland.

    Kilmainham Gaol is a former prison in Kilmainham, Dublin, Ireland. Many Irish revolutionaries, including the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising, were imprisoned and executed in the prison by the British.
