Dermot Patrick Martin Dunne is the current Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.[1]

Formerly a Roman Catholic priest educated at the Pontifical University, Maynooth,[2] Dunne became an Anglican in 1995 after a period of study at the Church of Ireland Theological College. He became the Dean’s Vicar of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin; Rector of Crosspatrick, Precentor at Ferns Cathedral and Archdeacon of Ferns before becoming dean.[3] The theft of the remains of Dublin's patron saint, St Lawrence O' Toole, from the cathedral took place during the current dean's incumbency.[citation needed]
