Saint Patrick's Cathedral Choir School

The Choir School was founded in 1432 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. Today it is housed in modern buildings opposite the Cathedral. The school is a co-educational national school and all the boys are choristers in the cathedral choir.

The school is renowned for the excellence of its teaching staff, and for its friendliness: small classes mean a real focus and care for each child. Saint Patrick's Cathedral Choir School is unique in being the only school of its kind in this country, and it is the oldest school in Ireland.
