Dean & Chapter

The Chapter is the body of clergy responsible for the ministry and mission of the Cathedral. It is composed of four Dignitaries (Dean, Precentor, Chancellor and Treasurer), the Archbishop of Dublin, twelve Diocesan canons to represent each diocese of the Church of Ireland, nine canons elected by the Chapter, and two ecumenical canons elected by the Chapter.

There are two resident clergy who minister at the Cathedral: the Dean and the Dean’s Vicar. All other clergy serve in parishes or schools in Ireland.
