GLASNEVIN CEMETERY 2018
THE FIRST AND MOST COMPREHENSIVE CATALOGUE OF ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE CAPITAL CITY

I started 2018 with a visit to Glasnevin Cemetery and the Botanic Gardens.


The cemetery is located in Glasnevin, Dublin, in two parts. The main part, with its trademark high walls and watchtowers, is located on one side of the road from Finglas to the city centre, while the other part, "St. Paul's," is located across the road and beyond a green space, between two railway lines. The Glasnevin Trust Museum was designed by A&D Wejchert & Partners Architects.

A gateway into the National Botanic Gardens adjacent to the cemetery was reopened in recent years.

The cemetery contains historically notable monuments and the graves of many of Ireland's most prominent national figures. These include the graves of Daniel O'Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins, Éamon de Valera, Arthur Griffith, Maude Gonne, Kevin Barry, Roger Casement, Constance Markievicz, Pádraig Ó Domhnaill, Seán MacBride, Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa, Frank Duff, Brendan Behan, Christy Brown and Luke Kelly of the Dubliners.
