I was lucky enough to have Eamon Phoenix conducting a tour we did one Hallowe'en. Dr Phoenix, unlike so many historians, really has the skills and ability to bring history alive and make it interesting. Most noteably, the grave of Barney Hughes, the hugely successful baker who invented the Belfast Bap, is contained in Friar's Bush. The mass grave, Plaguey... More

I had to give some notice when booking my appointment - 3 days wasn't enough notice so I settled on 2 weeks in advance which was today! The staff member was there to unlock the gates at 09:00 as requested & he remained within the graveyard until I was ready to leave. There are no proper paths so you will... More

I noticed this ancient old graveyard whilst sitting in the cafeteria of the Ulster museum in Belfast, drinking a cup of tea and fortunately looking out of the window. A quest followed then in order to try to find it from ouside, as I had no notice of where it might have been. The cemetry seemed long been neglected, but... More
