Confirmation of Arms by Chief Herald

March 1, 2019  Posted in: News

The Cathedral’s crest has been registered with the Chief Herald’s Office and the beautifully illustrated confirmation of arms was presented to the Dean on 26 of February. It will now be displayed in the Cathedral through the support of the Friends of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. The arms were commissioned by the Herald of Arms, Micheál Ó Comáin and painted by Billy Lutton, Herald Painter. The arms are based upon the ancient 13th Century seal of the Cathedral Chapter. The written confirmation of the arms is in both Irish and English. Photograph Nick Bradshaw.
