Beyond the Grave

The social and physical acts surrounding burial and death in both modern and ancient Ireland.

Limerick Museum and Archives (LM&A) in partnership with Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, will be hosting a three day conference on the theme of death and burial in Ireland.

LM&A and the Geography and History Departments of Mary Immaculate College, have been working for almost three years on a joint project to digitise the records of Mount St. Lawrence Cemetery and to showcase its historical importance to the city of Limerick. Two main projects which will be launched are: a searchable map of this 18 acre burial ground and a comprehensive history of the cemetery. These projects will be launched over a weekend long conference in Limerick, where all aspects of death and burial in Ireland will be looked at. 

This conference is open to all who are interested in this area of Irish heritage, bridging the gap between academic and non-academic. There will be aspects of ironworks discussed in this conference.

The conference will take place throughout Limerick City with the Friday event taking place in City Hall, the Saturday lectures in Mary Immaculate College and the Sunday event will take place in various sites across the city.

This is a FREE conference though bookings is VITAL as places are limited. Bookings can be made by email to
