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.
