Dublin's Christ Church Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, is the older of the city's two medieval cathedrals, the other being St. Patrick's nearby.

The earliest manuscript dates the cathedral to its present location alongside the River Liffey to ca.1030. Dúnán, the first bishop of Dublin and Sitriuc, Norse king of Dublin, founded the original Viking church, which was probably subject to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

By 1152, it was incorporated into the Irish church and within a decade the famous Archbishop Laurence O’Toole, who became the patron saint of Dublin, had been appointed.
