When I noticed this postcard the other day, I assumed it was a joke; like the “Rush Hour in Ireland” photo showing a road full of sheep.
But when I turned it over, I realised I was wrong!
Glasnevin Cemetery Daily Walking ToursTaken from the back of the postcard:
Glasnevin Cemetery offers daily walking tours, (@ 2.30 p.m. for €5) which are lead by Historian Shane MacThomais and his team of experienced guides. The tour gives a valuable insight into this unique Victorian Cemetery and into the final resting place of the men and women who have helped shape Ireland’s past and present.
This historical tour takes in the graves of Daniel O’Connel, Maude Gonne McBride, Charles Stewart Parnell, James Larkin, Michael Collins, Brendan Behan (to name but a few) and places of architectural and cultural interest in the cemetery.
