St. Anne's Church, Dublin 2

St. Ann's Church, Dawson Street, in Dublin, Ireland, was built in the early 18th century following the establishment of the Anglican parish in 1707. In the early 21st century the church presents itself as ecumenical within the tradition of the Church of Ireland.

The building of the physical church in baroque style commenced in 1720, to a design by Issac Wills.[2] The current façade dates to the 19th century. In 1907, St. Ann's was listed with five other churches as Dublin's only church buildings surviving from the 18th century.

Some of the famous people associated with the church include Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, Oscar Wilde and Dr TJ Barnardo (1845-1905), founder of the famous children's charity.

Walk up to the altar and have a look at the writing under a section of wooden shelving. In summary it explains that in 1723 a bequest of £13 per annum was made to provide fresh loaves of bread to the poor. To this day a number of loaves are always on the shelves for anyone in need.
