- On this site stand two churches dedicated to St. Audoen. One, a Protestant place of worship, is now a national monument and the earliest medieval church still standing in Dublin. Admire the 12th-century tower - the oldest in Ireland - and imagine the bells tolling to remind parishioners to pray for those at sea. In the grounds surrounding the church you'll find the only gateway left of the old city and restored parts of the old city walls. The adjacent Roman Catholic church was built in 1847. Note the two clam shells from the South Pacific which flank the entrance and which are now used as holy water vessels. A short film on Ireland before the Vikings can be watched in the basement. Mass is held here at 11am on Sundays.
