Down Cathedral

I really must pay a visit to Down Cathedral, Downpatrick, because I wish to take photographs of the coats-of-arms of the landed County Down (Downshire, the archaic term) families emblazoned upon the walls of the nave.

I'm particularly eager to see the arms of the Ker family, of Montalto and Portavo. I am currently drafting a small article about their lineage.

Trivia Note: HRH The Duke of Kent's grandson is styled Lord Downpatrick.
