    The English side of the wall

    Lifetime Dubliner Eamon Carroll took us on a tour of Dublin's history focusing on the independence movement of the early 1900s. One of our first stops was tranquil and seldom-visited Arbor Hill Cemetery where 14 of the leaders of the "Easter Rising" of 1916 are buried. At the rear of the cemetery is a wall with the Irish Proclamation of Independence written in Irish and English.

    Arbor Hill is a military cemetery managed by the Irish Department of Defense. This is the ideal stop after a visit to Kilmainham Prison.

    Arbor Hill Cemetery is located on the north side of the Liffey, not far from Phoenix Park. From Wolf Tone Quay, you can take Temple Street West north, up the hill to Arbor Hill Road. The cemetery is near the back of the Collins Military Barracks Museum.
