Arbour Hill Cemetery

average rating is 4.7 out of 5

Arbour Hill (Irish: Cnoc an Arbhair) is an inner city area of Dublin, on the Northside of the River Liffey, in the Dublin 7 postal district. Arbour Hill, the road of the same name, runs west from Blackhall Place in Stoneybatter, and separates Collins Barracks, now part of the National Museum of Ireland, to the south from Arbour Hill Prison to the north, whose graveyard includes the burial plot of the signatories of the Easter Proclamation that began the 1916 Rising.

The Irish composer Vincent Kennedy set a movement entitled "Arbour Hill" as part of his commissioned Symphonic work "IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN" in 1916. The movement is a moving tribute to the 1916 signatories and leaders buried at Arbour Hill graveyard.
