The Penannular Brooch



Outside The Saint Patrick Centre you can see a large bronze sculpture, Penannular Brooch, which was created by artist Alan Burke, from Newcastle, County Down, in 2010.

People in Early Christian times used penannular brooches to fasten their cloaks. A real brooch can be seen in the Down Through Time exhibition in Down County Museum.

Turn right outside The Saint Patrick Centre, walk along the path by the road, with the Grove and Hill of Down on your right, until you reach the Downpatrick and County Down Railway.
