It seems appropriate that, on the day when it has been announced that Clonliffe College has been handed over to provide accommodation for Ukranian refugees, we feature a photograph of the tomb of a Prince of the Church, Cardinal Cullen situated in Clonliffe in Dublin. This is a Royal plate which seems to be very large for a relatively small object?

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Circa 1865 - 1914

NLI Ref: L_ROY_01110

He was buried at Holy Cross College in Drumcondra beneath the High Altar. On June 25th, 2021, his remains were transferred to St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, Dublin 1. The sale of Holy Cross College required that his body be reinterred. ..."

    Certainly before 1909, when the shrub on the left had expanded. See this fuzzy newspaper via Trove, "A Glowing Tribute" - trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/105191104
