Saintly Lives and Sacred Places Walking Tour

With Reg McCabe, Time Theme Tours

This two hour ramble around Dublin's historic Liberties district will focus on the role of religion and religious belief in the lives of the ordinary people. The tour will take in a range of sites including some of the iconic church buildings like St Patrick's Cathedral, as well as churches dedicated to St Nicholas, St Luke, St Catherine, St Werburgh and St John. Contrasting with these very obvious sacred sites, our tour will include holy shrines and other less visible locations that all form part of a living religious landscape.

Meet at 11am, Church of St. Nicholas of Myra, Francis Street, Dublin 8. Ends approx. 1pm
