Glasnevin update & the New Madrid Fault

Greetings — we’ve added more listings to the gorgeous Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin, Ireland. Look for the NEW. A quick story: on our guided tour, at the grave of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa, the guide said we were in for a special presentation. As you’ll read in the post, the eulogy for O’Donovan Rossa is a powerful part of Irish history. As we watched, a young man dressed in full Irish Volunteer uniform, marched to the grave and recited the entire eulogy. It was a very moving moment.

 

On our Mississippi River cruise recently, we visited New Madred, Missouri. There’s a quick sidebar about an interesting burial there.

Enjoy.

Dublin, Ireland Cemetery and a Tale from Wales

Glasnevin Cemetery, DublinGreetings — on our recent cruise around the United Kingdom, we visited the gorgeous national cemetery in Dublin, Ireland. We had been advised to book a tour and I’m glad we did. With more than 1.5 million burials, we would never have found the really important people in the short time we had. We’ll be posting more burials soon.

In Wales, we learned a wonderful story about the adventures of a local woman, Jemima the Great.

Enjoy.
