Door of Reconciliation

Door of Reconciliation

This door at St Patrick’s Cathedral has a hole cut through it where a lord who had taken refuge in the cathedral was asked to shake hands for a truce with the lord he was fighting with. He reluctantly put his hand out to shake. What I am wondering is how the other lord cut the hole in the door without the church getting very upset.

Statue of the Famine

This memorial is in honor of all the Irish who immigrated to Canada during the great potato famine, as well as those who died. There is a matching memorial somewhere in Canada. It is a moving reminder of the hardship that has shaped this country and left its mark on the history of Ireland.
