The Palestrina Choir, a male choir, was founded as a Boy's Choir in the 1890s & established through the financial generosity of Edward Martyn. Its many tours, recently to Poland & the Czech Republic, as well as CD recordings have established its reputation as 'a church choir which would be a model for the whole of Ireland'.
Canon John Flaherty (since )
St Mary's was built and dedicated in 1825, with its ancestry traced back to the Cistercian Abbey of the 12th century. It is now the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin, ie the 'mother' church of the diocese.
