There are old 'mystic' buildings everywhere. Don't forget to check them out. This is the <font color=blue>St Audoen's Church of Ireland</font>. That's one of the oldest existing churches in Dublin. A norman church to St Ouen was built here in 1190 to replace an earlier structure dedicated to St Colmcille. It is said to have the oldest bells in Ireland with three bells dating from 1423 hanging in the tower. In the main porch is stored an early christian gravestone known as the Lucky Stone which has been kept here since before 1309 and has many strange legends connected with it. Much of the church lies in ruins, the main nave been used for services only.
