Downpatrick's Cathedral


This is Down Cathedral, Downpatrick, a beautiful stone church and it is the final resting place of Patrick, but more on that tomorrow.


It was the kind of day which made taking photos of the steeple a delight as the sky was so blue.



The details of the steeple are great as is the railing around these graves.


A view from the newer graveyard looking towards the Mourne Mountains in the distance.
