From the simplest slab of weathered stone to the most imposing monument, every marker in Glasnevin Cemetery bears witness to a life that helped shape the history and culture of the Irish state. This book offers a fascinating insight into some of these lives. Within its pages, you'll meet not only the heroes of the Irish fight for freedom, like Michael Collins and Eamon de Valera, but also lesser-known Irish men and women who made important contributions to the state in the arts, sports, military service, politics, and other areas of Irish life. Glasnevin Cemetery has great national significance through the social and historical influence of the people buried there from all walks of life over 178 years.
