St Audoen's Church, Dublin 8

St Audoen's Church is one of the oldest existing churches in Dublin. It is a Norman church in the heart of the walled city and containing the oldest bells in Ireland dating from 1423 hanging in the tower.
St Audoen's Church is dedicated to St Ouen, the 7th centuary bishop of Rouen and patron saint of Normandy. It was built in 1190 to replace an earlier structure dedicated to St Colmcille. Its founders and successors were to be called the Guild or Fraternity of St. Anne.
The unroofed chancel and Portlester Chapel was also given a face lift as part of this major project. The Office of Public Works have recently restored and re-roofed St Ann's Guild Chapel, the blocked off south transept of the Church, which has been without a roof since 1826.
The Chapel is now in use as a visitor centre where visitors can view the 17th century memorials to the Sparke and Duff families and the 15th century effigial tomb to Baron Portlester and his wife.
