Mount Jerome is a forty-seven acre site in Harold's Cross just outside Dublin city, Mount Jerome is one of Dublin's most famous cemeteries, the other being Glasnevin on the north side. James Joyce's Ulysses mentions it. Mount Jerome has a large number of highly ornate crypts and memorials. These range from simple urns on columns, to broken columns and weeping angels to large imposing columned structures .Angels and urns are the most photographic especially with the toy camera. There is underground access to many of the crypts also worth photographing.

As well as the many Dubliners both protestant and catholic there are well known people also buried here including Sir William Wilde Oscar's father and members of the Guinness family, Martin Cahill known as the general is buried here. Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) members plot is there and the remains of the French Huguenots fare also buried here.

This image was taken on a toy camera the Holga on Ilford HP5 film and developed in Agfa Rodinal.

If you are in Dublin do put it on your list of places to visit.
