Arbour Hill Cemetery
On a street behind Collins Barracks lies Arbour Hill Cemetery, the final resting-place of fourteen of the leaders of the Easter Rising. It is a simple memorial consisting of a granite wall with the Proclamation of the Republic (in Gaelic and English) etched in it and gold cross in the middle. The grassy area in front of the memorial is marked with the names of the fourteen buried there. In fitting symbolism, the Cemetery is bordered by a prison. Even in death these men are still guarded.
