1.Just for clarity could someone explain what exactly reordering is: What the effects are on the cathedral and why people want to do it? As an aside – are georgian mansions the only protected buildings in ireland? Are churches not considered heritage to be protected from the whims of the vatican?

2.In a somewhat related vein- is anyone else here bothered by the presence of a gift shop actually in the nave of st.Patick’s Dublin? Is this not a disgrace? I am disgusted by the commercialization of churches when done in such an obtrusive way -anyone who’s touristed london for example will know, both st. paul’s and WA are more akin to theme-parks….

3.Why can’t Ireland have something like Westminster (RC) Cathedral or the Brompton Oratory if we have nominally almost as many Caths. as Britain?
