Title: Pro-Cathedral
Material: Portland Stone
Location: Pro-Cathedral Dublin

Relating to the neo-classical architecture of the cathedral this recess between two pilasters was the ideal setting for the unique record of the Archbishops of Dublin since 1152. The top element of this stone structure is the coat of arms of the Diocese of Dublin, immediately underneath is the introductory inscription, in itself a fine example of wordcraft, which in length ties the two large tablets bearing in succession the names of the Archbishops. In the design it was important that on the right hand tablet the list of names stopped at a point allowing further names to be inscribed.
