Dublin's deadliest place. For a cemetery, Bully's Acre was a very lively place - by day and by night. Kilmainham Tale 4

In the grounds of the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, Bully's Acre is famous as the (almost) last resting place of Robert Emmet, and has clasped to it's bosom tens of thousands and many generations of Dubliners - commoners, businessmen, captains and privates ... even the sons of kings.

Now historian and best-selling author Paul O'Brien tells the story of this little-known graveyard. It is a story of religion, grave-robbing, poverty and sickness - but above all it is a story that is at the very heart of the history of Dublin itself for those buried here are Dublin' sons and daughters, culled by the Great leveller from all strata of society.
