Photographer's Note

Glasnevin cemetary is situated in North Dublin, Ireland, and is the final resting place to over 1.1 million people.

Many famous figures from Irish history are buried here including political leaders, religious leaders, activists, poets, and of course the wealthy.

The cemetary is a trove of monuments of all kinds, including celtic crosses, elaborate carved statues, crypts, tombs and probably most famous, the huge round tower in memory of Daniel O Connell.

Today there is also a brand new museum and interpretive centre which tells the history of Irelands Necropolis.

Pictured here is one of the elabroate tombs, which despite looking quite cathedral like, is only large enough to house a few people inside. For scale, the height to the tip of this monument is approximately 15 feet.
