St Patrick's, in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, has a long and intriguing history. Built between 1771 and 1774 for the Scottish Episcopal Church, it was sold to the United Presbyterian Congregation in 1818. It was then bought by bishop Gillis in 1856 to serve the growing number of Irish immigrants who had settled in the Cowgate area of Edinburgh. The church also has a shrine and relics of the Venerable Margaret Sinclair. 18th century artworks by Alexander Runciman, in the east apse of the church, are part of a current restoration project to recover these culturally significant artworks.
