Trim Cathedral (also known as St Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral), is an Anglican building in the town of Trim in County Meath. Although austere in appearance on the outside, the building is a gem on the inside. A must see if you go through Meath!
The cathedral of St. Patrick de Trim dates back to the 16th century. Its tower is a vestige of the medieval parish church that originally stood there.
The first bishops have been inducted here since 1536, but the place was only given the name “cathedral” in 1955. You can admire a magnificent clock at the top of the tower. It pays homage to Dean Butler, a great historian born in the town of Trim.
Among other notable features, don’t miss the stained glass window in the west window of the Trim Cathdral: this was the first stained glass ever made by artist Edward Burne-Jones.
Free entrance inside the cathedral. Photos are tolerated, provided that you are discreet and donate a few pieces to the building…
