CATHEDRAL CHAIRS

Over the years, Christ Church Cathedral Dublin has benefited greatly from donations made by its many Friends, such as chairs dedicated to loved ones.

We are currently completing a project to catalogue and record the dedications of old and new chairs.

If you have a dedication plaque at home we should be very grateful if you could send us the following information, so that we can ensure it is included:

Name of person to whom the chair is dedicated

Dedication message

A photo of the plaque (if possible)

Please email the information by April 30th 2015, to the special email address we have set up chairschristchurchcathedral@gmail.com or post the information to:

Mrs. Lesley Rue, The Friends’ Office, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin 8.

We shall be publishing and sharing this register on the Website and a copy in book format will also be on view at the West End of the Cathedral.

Trinity Sunday:

31 May. Further details will be in Spring/Summer ‘Friends News’ which will be published towards early May.
