A COLLECTION OF CELTIC CROSSES

I must admit that I was amazed by the number of Celtic Crosses in this cemetery.
Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery, the largest cemetery in Ireland and the first of its kind.
The cemetery embodies the history of Ireland through its story and the famous men and women buried here.
From the opening of its gates in 1832 right through to its most recent event — the State funerals of Kevin Barry and his comrades on October 2001, Glasnevin Cemetery has acted as Ireland’s National Cemetery and is the final resting place of those who have helped shape modern Ireland.
