The Quoile River, Downpatrick
Back to my Lightroom catalogue. I took these images of Saul Church in Downpatrick in 2016 and for some reason I can’t remember, processed them in colour. They look fine (I’ve even sold prints) but I can’t figure out why I haven’t processed them to black and white before now.
Saul Church is built on the site of St. Patrick’s first church in Ireland. It is said that when he came to Ireland in 432 the local chieftain gave him a barn, where the church now stands, to hold services in. Patrick is believed to have died at Saul and his reputed grave is in the grounds of Down Cathedral, Downpatrick. Flowers are laid there on St. Patrick’s Day each year.
Services are still held in the Church at Saul.
