St. Mary's Cathedral

Taphophile ~ a person who has a passion for and enjoys cemeteries, epitaphs, photography, history, and art of deaths; also known as a tombstone tourist, graver, grave hunter, or cemetery enthusiast 
That definition would describe me.  A person who, no matter where she travels, always searches out the best graveyards she can find.  In Limerick I found St. Mary's Cathedral.  Founded in 1168, it is the oldest building in Limerick still in daily use.  

While the church is stunning in its history and architecture, I was most interested in the cemetery.  

The Celtic Cross is a plentiful symbol.  

Some are simple in their decoration.....

and others are quite elaborate.  

All were beautiful.
