Dardistown Cemetery History
Dardistown Cemetery is a cemetery located in Dublin, Ireland. It dates back to the early 19th century and is considered one of the oldest and most historically significant cemeteries in Ireland.
The original site of Dardistown, or “Old Dardis,” was owned by the Dardis family since 1750. The original burial ground was located on their land at one corner of the present day cemetery.
In 1813, John Edward Dardis sold a parcel of his land to the Roman Catholic Church on which they built a chapel and established a graveyard known as St Mary’s Chapel Burial Ground.
Over the years, more lands were purchased by the church and added to the cemetery grounds until it reached its current size.
By 1868, it had become one of the largest cemeteries in all of Ireland.
The local government took over ownership of Dardistown Cemetery shortly thereafter and has managed it ever since.
The cemetery is home to thousands of grave markers from various eras throughout its history, including some from World War I and II as well as several memorials dedicated to those affected by The Troubles during that time period.
There are also numerous headstones honoring members of prominent Irish families, including members of the O’Connell family who lived in nearby Clonliffe College for many years.
In addition to its significance as an important site for burials throughout much of Irish history, Dardistown Cemetery is also home to some interesting features such as an underground crypt containing multiple vaults used for storing bodies before burial or entombment takes place.
There are also several tombs dating back centuries in age which have been carefully preserved and maintained over time out of respect for those who have passed away there.
Today, Dardistown Cemetery remains a popular spot for visitors searching for information on their ancestors or looking to explore Irish history up close.
It serves as an important reminder not only for Dubliners but for people around the world about life in Ireland through different periods in time – from war-torn times to prosperous ones – all told through its many gravesites interred within this sacred ground.
