Can't wait until I can get down to Downpatrick to get a photo of the new statue. I was watching BBC Newsline tonight and they had a news item about it. Apparently it depicts Saint Patrick. To me it looks like someone has lifted my wrought iron gate, melted it down and made a bad attempt at reshaping it. Think I caught them saying it cost in the region of £18000. Some girl was saying "People will know when they get to the statue that they are in Downpatrick" I was wondering, whats wrong with a big 12 x 16 sign saying DOWNPATRICK, only cost's a fraction of the price. The best line in the item fell to a young lady who said "Its a bit like the Angel Of The North only it's a different type" Yes I do believe she was blonde.
