Saint Patrick's Cathedral Choir School

The Choir School was founded by Archbishop Richard Talbot to provide for the education of the choirboys and was originally housed in what is now the robing room of the cathedral. It has had an almost continuous history since its foundation, the two interruptions being the Reformation and Cromwell's Commonwealth.

800 years since its foundation the Choir School is now a co-educational National School and is housed in more modern building in the Cathedral Close and continues to educate the Cathedral Choristers who sing daily in Saint Patrick's much like their predecessors.
