TUBRID CEMETERY - HISTORIC GRAVEYARD A lot work has been carried out on Tubrid Cemetery over the past year and is a huge credit to all involved. The graveyard is being tended by a Tus Scheme as well as being the focus of detailed historical research, historicgraves.com/graveyard/tubrid/ts-tbrd or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tubrid. It is of historical significance as the burial site of many well known clergymen including Geoffrey Keating, John Brennan Archbishop of Cashel and Eugene O’Duffy. On the same site a Protestant Church completed in 1820 and functioned as a place of worship for the Church of Ireland Community until the early 1900s. Also on the site is a memorial commissioned by both denominations to Dr Valentine Flood who died of typhus contracted in the Tubrid ‘fever sheds’ during the Great Famine. SYMPATHY
