During the 18th century Jonathan Swift, author of Gullivers Travels was Dean of Saint Patrick's between 1713-1745. Later that century the Cathedral's steeple height was extended and spire added to the structure. (It is 200ft high).  During extensive renovations which were undertaken between 1860-1865, a Celtic Cross marking the location of St. Patrick's Holy Well was discovered.   Guinness Brewery founder Benjamin Lee Guinness ( 1798-1868 ) contributed an estimated £130,000 towards the Cathedral's restoration & provision of adjoining park area.
