Who'd have thought Dublin's most interesting tourist attraction would be a cemetery.
The opening line to the tour the day I went was: "Dublin has a population of 1.3m people. Glasnevin Cemetery has 1.5m residents". From that moment you knew there was going to be interesting stories to tell.
I like that the Glasnevin Trust invested in a visitor centre to give it an income stream for the future. They are doing great work sharing the stories of Dublin and Ireland's forefathers with visitors and later generations. The good work maintaining the site is the best respect they could offer to the residents of the site.
