Tombstone Tuesday: Just beyond a 'Cathedral' of trees

In Maynooth, County Kildare, at the site of Maynooth Cathedral and Seminary School, there is a simple unadorned graveyard, in which priests and others who were once members of the seminary community are interred. It is in an area behind the school and the church, so if you do not know where to look for it, you will not find it. The tops of the trees have been grown so that they knit together in such a way that a sort of beautiful 'Cathedral' of trees is created. The entranceway is obscured, although it is marked by an icon of the crucified Christ, and the gate into the cemetery is just behind it.
