"warriors and princes of high renown." (U12.70)
Among the preserved remains are a 400-year-old nun, a six-and-a-half foot alleged crusader, Henry and John Sheares (leaders of the 1798 rebellion), and a mysterious body with hands and feet severed. The various Earls of Kenmare are also interred here, as well as the family of Bram Stoker. One of the crypts contains the death mask of the United Irish leader Wolfe Tone. The churchyard is said to contain the unmarked grave of United Irishman Robert Emmet, leader of the 1803 rising.
