A Walking Tour discussing Disestablishment 150 years ago looking at the Cathedrals of Christ Church and St Patrick’s and adjacent parish churches and how they reflect this event.

Disestablishment 150. While it was primarily a political, social, and indeed religious event – a former established church being made a voluntary one, - buildings can help flesh out this story. Cathedrals in particular were restored or rebuilt first as a bulwark against Disestablishment – St Patrick’s in Dublin was extensively restored and St Fin Barre’s in Cork was entirely rebuilt. Christ Church Cathedral was restored after Disestablishment as an encouragement to the newly voluntary church.
