Here lies St Patrick
This sculpture of St Patrick greets the visitor to Downpatrick.
Lt's go inside the Cathedral...
On entering, the wonderful pipe organ is the main feature.
Simple elegant beauty and a magnificent stained glass window of the 12 disciples.
And of course a commemorative window depicting the life of Patrick in Ireland from shepherd boy to bishop.
It is believed that Patrick died on 17th March 461.
To the graveyard now at the side of the Cathedral lies the final resting place of Patrick and this tombstone, with ancient inscription.
Have a great day!
