Wow!  Whoever thought there would be an Armenian liturgy in Dublin?

The very earlliest strains of Christianity in Ireland come from the Oriental Churches. There is also evidence that the tradition of monumental stone crosses comes from Armenia. It is wonderful that now there an Armenian Liturgy available there after so many centuries!
