Day Two Hundred Sixty-Five

UK GB-214881 received 04-14-2011

Sent by: killercactus17
From: Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
ID number: GB-214881
Notes: Hilllsborough Castle, located in the Northern Ireland village of Hillsborough, was built in the 18th century as a private residence.  In 1922, it was purchased by the British Goverment as a residence for the governor of Northern Ireland.  That position was abolished in 1973, and the Castle then became the home of the Secretary of State.  The Royal Family also stays there while in Northern Ireland, as do other prominent guests.
