Cur síos

Glasnevin Cemetery came into being when national hero Daniel O’Connell, in a time of religious oppression, demanded the opening of a burial ground in which both Catholics and Protestants could lay their dead to rest. He said, in fact, it should be for people ‘of all religions and none’.

From 1832 till now over 1.5 million people from all walks of life have been laid to rest here from revolutionaries, politicians, poets, heroes, railway engineers, soldiers, singers, babies and one 112-year-old!

In this book we look at some of those people who reach out to us from the past – our past.
