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 historic importance to the city of Limerick.
We wish to launch our two main projects: 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 we look at all aspects of death and burial in Ireland.
This conference is for all who are interested in this area of our heritage bridging the gap between academic and non- academic, the experts and non-experts.
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.
