Search Saint Finbarr's Cemetery:

Cork, the second largest city in the Republic, is an important industrial centre on the River Lee, and the cemetery is situated on the south-west side of the town on the Bandon Road/ Glasheen Road, 3 miles (5 km) from the city centre in the district of Glasheen.
Named after Saint Finbarr, the Bishop of Cork in the 6th century and patron saint for the city and the diocese of Cork. St. Finbarr's Cemetery is the city's largest and one of it's oldest cemeteries. It was opened in the mid 19th century and unlike older cemeteries, St. Finbarr's was professionally laid out with numbered pathways and wide avenues. The cemetery contains one of the largest burial plots of Irish Republicans who died in the course of the struggle for Irish freedom. There are 11 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war and 5 of the 1939-1945 war here.
