Rathmines - there's a fascinating story behind this dome: it was originally made for a church in Russia (I forget exactly where), but then the Russian Revolution occurred and as the Bolsheviks were opposed to state religions (and doubtless even more opposed to shelling out money) the dome was flogged off at a cheap price to the church in Rathmines. (I am retelling this from my recollection of an old newspaper article on it so details may not be 100% accurate.)
