George Colley former FF minister is buried in Templeogue Graveyard, Dublin. I dont think he was from the area, he served in northside constituencies. It doesnt seem to be tended to anymore which I always find poignant to see graves quite overgrown and unattended to.

Ronald W Reagen 40th President of the United States



He has every right to be up there as a rockstar

.....and another Irish explorer's grave, that of Tom Crean, with a nice lady standing next to it. It's taken from a comprehensive website, and gives all kinds of info on the great man. (I hope I don't get a doing over the copy/paste)

http://www.tomcrean.com/



Previous to this, the frozen wastes lured him twice, each time with Captain Robert Falcon Scott. The first of Scott's expeditions, the voyage of Discovery, lasted from 1901 to 1904. The second, and fatal one, began in 1910 and went on for three years. On this voyage, Tom Crean was petty officer on the ship "Terra Nova" which navigated Ross Sea, Mc Murdo sound, Cape Evans and Hut Point. Scott and his party reached the Pole on January 17th 1912, but perished on the return trek. Crean was in the relief party that found Scott's frozen body. Crean himself had been within 180 miles of the pole.
He retired from the Navy as a Warrant Officer, was decorated with sword at Buckingham Palace and was awarded several medals including the Albert medal for saving the life of Evans. He built the south Pole Inn in Annascaul where he lived out his days with his wife Nell and daughters Eileen and Mary.
He died in 1938 and is buried in Ballinacourty.

****************************************************

I knew one of Scott's grandchildren in the UK, years ago. She had an appointment to come and see me, one bad winter, but was held up because of the snow and ice. It must have been hereditary.

Dame Alice Kytler "the Witch of Kilkenny" convicted and sentenced to be burnt she got away and her maid Petronnella of Meath was barbequed.

While dubbed a witch she was likely just a poisener who killed husbands and took their money.

Now be fair - you mentioned Charlie Haughey, Patrick Sarsfield and Robert Emmet in your OP.

Why would you politicise the thread in the first place by excluding some of the most famous Irishmen of all (on the basis that they were republicans) ? While also including politically active non-republicans such as those in the suffragette movement ?
