On the 13th October, ten pupils from 6th Class, went to Christ Church Cathedral for the Dublin and Glendalough Diocesan Service. We left the school at 9:15 and drove to Dublin for the service. The Portuguese and Spanish Archbishops were visiting for the service. We sang some songs and some people read the creed, others brought up prayers and school crests. At the end the Spanish and Portuguese Archbishops were given a cross made from wood (Irish bog oak).
After the service we saw Strongbow’s tomb, and then we went down under the cathedral to the crypt to see the cat and the mouse mummified skeletons. The story is that some years back, when they went to change the organ, they found a mouse and cat skeleton in an organ pipe. The cat had been chasing the mouse and then, the mouse ran into the organ pipe and got stuck the cat followed and got stuck too.
It was a brilliant day out and we would recommend that people go to visit Christ Church, even if it is just to see the beauty.
