A graveyard with Limerick people interred therein is probably in Limerick, or is it? Looking pristine and well tended I wonder how it looks today? Who was Robert Potter and Fitzgerald?

Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence

Collection: Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection

Date: Catalogue range c.1860-1883. Possibly after c.1874 (graves)

    I'm getting in early on this one as I am oh so familiar with the scene. I thought I would be buried just a short distance to the left of this church but 50 years in Dublin have changed that! The church and area were badly dilapidated and vandalised but recent work has been done to correct that and the cemetery has been rejuvenated (?), renovated, restored and researched. There is now an excellent website detailing those who have been interred here including both sides of my family. See

    • 11/Oct/2018 11:42:18 Thank you, Sir! I still have not renewed my Poetic Licence for this year. Flickr is sometimes amazing! In 2016 via who has a series of photos of this graveyard. The iron railing of the grave in the foreground is seen in both photos (much vandalised)... Also a little to the left shows at enormous resolution an inscription to Jeremiah Dowling who died in 1874. Presumably this stereo pair is after 1874 ... ?

    I can see this in 3D by uncrossing my eyes. It gives you a headache after a while.

    Wonderful collection. Can you possibly tell me if any of the photos are images of my 4th Grand Uncle Robert Potter?
