KILMACUD CARMEL CEMETERY
Consecrated July 6th 1900 by His Grace Dr.Walsh
(scroll down for a listing of deceased sisters and a link to their memorial page)


Life size Pieta donated in 1932 by Miss Farrell, sister of the sculptor Sir Thomas Farrell

THE OLDEST IMAGE OF OUR CEMETERY:
The hut to contain the Pieta is not yet built, and there are no grave crosses yet visible,
but perhaps two burials - one on each side - which indicates the photo was possibly
taken around the time of the cemetery consecration in 1900




EARLY VIEWS:
The Pieta can be seen in these early photos.
There seems to be at least 12 burials in the cemetery when these
photos were taken, so that would date them approximately mid-1940's.
The cemetery gate is still in place today.

     
VIEWS FROM ABOUT 1970's -1980's:
Initially each grave was marked out individually by stone surround

            
MODERN VIEWS:
The cemetery is now completely lawn design


                       
There is a marvellous view of Howth Head and Dublin Bay from our cemetery
