6th class from St. Kevin’s went on a historical tour to Glasnevin Cemetery recently. It is remarkable how many of the most famous and important figures in our history are buried there and the guides did a great job in telling us interesting facts about these people and how they ended up in Glasnevin. We saw the graves of O’Connell and Parnell right through to de Valera and Collins and also had time to visit the museum where a short movie told of the history of the cemetery itself, mostly centered around the round tower marking the tomb of O’Connell. Over 1.6 million other ordinary Dubliners are buried there too – more people than live in the city itself now.20180410_110237
