Belfast & Northern Ireland

Milltown Cemetery

  546 Falls Rd      (+44) (0)28 9061 3972     15 Apr 2018
This 1872 Roman Catholic cemetery is a must-see in anyone's modern history tour of Belfast. Its entrance features a Victorian Romanesque gateway and large Celtic cross adorned with Biblical scenes. Inside, the Republic Plot has several high-profile IRA graves, including 1981 hunger striker Bobby Sands, and Mairéad Farrell, killed by the SAS in Gibraltar in 1988. A vast expanse of green space marks the site of an unmarked grave for over 80,000 victims of the 1918 pandemic flu.
