Viscount Craigavon

Viscount Craigavon, of Stormont in the County of Down, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1927 for James Craig, the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland. He had already been created a Baronet in 1918. As of 2007 the titles are held by his grandson, the third Viscount, who succeeded his father in 1974.
