A beautifully carved and well-preserved headstone reading “Erected by Patrick Blair in memory of his mother Mary Blair who departed this life the 19th of May 1820 aged 46 years. Also his father Patrick Blair who departed this life the 28th of June 1827 aged 55 years”.
The Priory church and graveyard, Holywood

The Priory stands at the Bangor end of High Street surrounded by modern development. It was built as a parish church in about 1200. It later became a Franciscan friary, reverting to the status of a parish church after restoration in 1615. It became disused in the middle of the 19th century when replaced by a new parish church.
