Join Brian in a guided tour to the iconic Glasnevin Cemetery where more than 1.5 Million interments have occurred! The tour includes also the entrance to the Museum.
The cemetery contains historically notable monuments and the graves of many of Ireland's most prominent national figures like Daniel O'Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins, Éamon de Valera and Arthur Griffith. The cemetery also offers a view of the changing style of death monuments in Ireland over the last 200 years: from the austere, simple, high stone erections of the period up until the 1860s, to the elaborate Celtic crosses of the nationalistic revival from the 1860s to the 1960s, to the plain Italian marble of the late 20th century.
