Today I had to visit the Harold’s Cross area of Dublin so I took the opportunity to visit Mount Jerome Cemetery where two of my Grandparents are buried even though they were Catholics and were involved in the 1916 Easter Rising.
Mount Jerome Cemetery & Crematorium is situated in Harold’s Cross on the south side of Dublin, Ireland. Since its foundation in 1836, it has witnessed over 300,000 burials. Originally an exclusively Protestant cemetery, Roman Catholics have also been buried there since the 1920s.
The cemetery is also known for its beautiful Victorian architecture, including the Victorian Chapel, which is still used for funeral services today.
