In the midst of the metropolis, a Huguenot burial ground

Along the walk between St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square, it is sometimes easy to miss this Huguenot burial ground tucked in between the buildings. Founded in 1693 by the French Huguenot non-conformist churches of Dublin, this cemetery is a small but important one. The large stone marker in the last photograph bears the names of over 200 Huguenot families whose members were interred in these grounds.

If you are interested in Huguenot interments, you may wish to visit my post: The Huguenot Communal Plot: 1713-1830: Mount Jerome Cemetery
