About St. Michan's Church

Though not as large or impressive as the Christ Church or the St. Patrick's Cathedral, St. Michan's has a certain appeal for those interested in history - and in mummies. The church's main attraction is its underground vault, which contain the mummified remains of a nun, a 6.5-foot-tall man (cut in half so he could fit in the coffin), and the Sheare Brothers, executed by the British after participating in the uprising of 1798. Michan's is one of the oldest churches in the city and contains the organ on which Handel is believed to have composed his Messiah. It was constructed on the site of an 11th-century Danish Chapel, and its interior contains fine woodwork.
