Anne Devlin 1780-1851

Born at Cronebeg, County Wicklow. She was the housekeeper of Robert Emmet and refused to betray him despite torture. She was originally buried in the pauperís area of the cemetery, but Dr Richard Madden had her remains removed to the present spot. A monument was erected over the grave. It had a rectangular stone with a triangular top overlapping the sides. At the base of the stone was an inset of a wolfhound lying on a bed of shamrocks and a cross was sculpted over the inscription. This monument was later replaced by the existing monument in 1904.
