ST. MARY’S CHURCH OF IRELAND CATHEDRAL AND GRAVEYARD
There was an intense downpour of rain not long before my visit and as a result some of the gravestones appeared very dark or even black.
The oldest part of the graveyard around Saint Mary’s Cathedral dates from the 12th century, but the earliest burial records date from 1726. Still an active graveyard, this churchyard has been hallowed ground for nine centuries. Remarkable and noteworthy burials and points of interest include the Barrington and Sexton vaults, the Protestant Orphan Grave, The Exchange Wall (dating from 1693), the United Nations Peace Garden, and the grave of Prince Milo Petrović-Njegoš of Montenegro.
