The Desecration of Ireland's Workhouse Graveyards ("Bully's Acres")

Former workhouse graveyards in Ireland, so-called "bully's acres", in which thousands of workhouse inmates were buried, many in mass unmarked graves during the famine years, are being sold off for redevelopment. A campaign to protect these historic sites has been launched by Gerald Daly and the situation highlighted in a recent article in leading Irish newspaper, the Sunday Tribune.

For more information and to lend your support to the campaign, please email Gerald Daly dalygerald@gmail.com.
