Manchester Martyrs

To the left of these crosses and behind is the memorial to the Manchester Martyrs, but this is only a memorial. The Manchester Martyrs - Allen, Larkin and O’Brien - were executed in 1867 for the death of a policeman during the rescue from custody of two Fenian leaders. The National Graves Association has discovered that they are buried in a cemetery in Manchester and recently erected a plaque over the grave. Unfortunately the remains are supposedly mixed in with the remains of other prisoners and cannot be separately identified.

Further information and directions to the grave are to be found in "Dead and Buried in Dublin - An Illustrated Guide to the Historic Graves of Dublin.  Click here to order a copy of this book
