Daniel O'Connell Mausoleum

On a recent visit to Glasnevin, I went into the Daniel O'Connell Mausoleum, easily distinguishable by the round tower. I believe it was closed until recently, but is now open to the public again.
His heart may have been in Rome, but it s current whereabouts are unknown. Below: the coffins of his relatives and the tomb itself.


  1. heart or his body is buried in a crypt in Rome at the irish embassy?

  2. His heart was at the Irish College but at the beginning of the 20th century was found to be missing.
