Cathedral Features on National TV

Historic Cathedral Takes Centre Stage on RTÉ’s Nationwide

Over the course of several days, the RTÉ production team recorded interviews with key figures such as the Dean, Administrator, and representatives from the Chapter, Music, and Education Departments. These interviews will offer an unparalleled look into the daily operations of the Cathedral and the dedicated individuals who uphold its legacy.

Viewers will discover the Cathedral’s storied past, tracing its origins and development to its current role as a cherished cultural and spiritual landmark. The episode will highlight the remarkable architecture, intricate craftsmanship, and stories behind Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, which has borne witness to generations of worshippers and visitors.

Moreover, the Nationwide feature offers an invaluable opportunity for the local and domestic audience to witness the bustling activity that takes place within the Cathedral. For many, it will be a chance to explore the hidden corners that are not often seen by the general public. We hope that this episode will spark a renewed interest in the Cathedral and inspire people to come and experience it for themselves.

The Nationwide episode featuring the Cathedral is scheduled to air on RTÉ One on Wednesday 26th July 2023 at 7pm. This captivating documentary promises to be a visual feast, unveiling the profound cultural and historical impact that the Cathedral has had on the local community and the nation at large.

Tune in on Wednesday 26th July 2023 at 7pm on RTÉ One.

Changes to worship schedule

If you’ve been worshipping with us during the last couple of weeks you may have wondered if we’d locked the choristers away somewhere as they’ve not been seen or heard at all….. yet.

The reason is that our 3 treble lines are all busy preparing to record a new Christmas disc for upper voices, the Cathedral Choir’s 7th with Regent Records, under the watchful gaze and keen ears of Gary Cole.

So apologies to those missing their daily dose of Matins, “normal service” will resume on the 8th May. Until then, there will be several disruptions, so do please check the website and music list for more details to avoid disappointment.
