Percy French

An acclaimed Irish entertainer, poet, songwriter and watercolourist, Percy French created much more than what he’s perhaps best known for – The Mountains of Mourne song.

At North Down Museum, we have a vast selection of Percy French memorabilia, which is managed in partnership with the Percy French Society.   The museum holds an exhibition each year in which we celebrate this talented man.

The collection holds diaries, song sheets, countless letters and around 100 Percy French paintings- we even have a door from the family’s home.
