Sssh……Egans House wants to tell you about the Christmas Market in the Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin this Saturday, 17th of December…last chance!!


             26 November – 17 December 2011
Venue: Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin City

The Christmas market has been running over the last 3 consecutive Saturdays….it began on the 26th November and continues until the 17th December.

Trading times will be from 11am to 4pm.

Situated in the heart of Medieval Dublin, Christ Church Cathedral is one of the best known and loved landmarks in the city. Easily reached by public transport or on foot from the main shopping areas, the cathedral attracts thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy the unique and magical experience that Christ Church has to offer.

The Christmas market is held indoors in the 12th Century crypt, with a total of 15 stalls creating an intimate festive shopping experience and will feature arts, crafts, jewellery and craft stalls including those by up and coming Irish designers. This year there will also be food stalls outside in the cathedral grounds and entry to the market will be free.

The year 2011 is an important and challenging year for the cathedral. In need of urgent repair and restoration work, a major fundraising campaign to raise the €2 million needed has been launched and all proceeds of the Christmas market will go towards its upkeep. The high profile campaign has already seen a host of names get behind the donation drive to save Christ Church including model Rosanna Davison, dancer Michael Flatley, singer Roger Whittaker, actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Irish Ambassador for culture, Gabriel Byrne.
