City of the Dead

The City of the Dead takes you on a journey through the history of the cemetery itself.  Here you will uncover more about the phenomenon of grave-robbing which was at one time rife in the city.  You will learn a bit more about the people who are buried here, what they owned and what was sacred to them.  You will also gain some insight to the vast archive that Glasnevin Trust maintains which dates back to the 1800's.
