National Museum of Ireland: The Shrine of St. Patrick's tooth.

 

The Shrine of St Patrick's tooth or "Fiacail Phadraig", a wooden shrine encased in bronze and decorated with ecclesiastical figures and a setting of gold, silver, brass and amber. The tooth reputedly fell out of St Patrick's mouth on to the doorstep of St Brone's Church, County Sligo.
