Is St. Valentine Buried in Dublin?

The Short Answer

He's not actually buried in Dublin, but the bones of Saint Valentine can be found in Whitefriar Street Church, Dublin. 

The Longer Answer

The human remains of Saint Valentine were gifted to an Irish Carmelite priest, Father Spratt in the sixteenth century by Pope Gregory after the pope was impressed by one of Father Spratt's speeches. The relics arrived in a sealed casket accompanied with a letter of certification from the pope, still held by the Carmelites. The letter says the casket contains the remains of Saint Valentine, which were removed especially from a cemetery in Rome. They casket also contains a vessel which was doused in Saint Valentine's blood. However, the inner box with these items has never been opened. Read more about the Shrine of Saint Valentine
