Photographs Of Royal Visit

I have just seen these splendid pictures which have been published of the Royal Maundy Service at Armagh.

The Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Rev Alan Harper, appears to have reintroduced the practice, in the Church of Ireland, of wearing a mitre and ceremonial robe. This is most welcome and has never been the case for many years indeed. I thought it died out after disestablishment, when Church of Ireland bishops were entitled to sit in the House of Lords.
