I always laugh where you see them breaking out the shovels and the ground is pure sand. You wouldn't go far digging a grave in Ireland without a pickaxe and a crowbar. A shovel on its own would be pointless.
There are lots of places still hand digging graves. But anyone seen a place with a crypt??
My great uncle went into a crypt in west Kerry about 7 or 8 years ago. Two second cousins of mine went in before and had to move bones out of way to get the coffin in. Doorway then closed up. He'll be last into it apparently. Last of that generation.
