Paupers graveyard on Coolcots lane, near Wexford town. Poor people who could not afford to pay for a headstone would be buried in a separate graveyard, in unmarked graves. Even in death, not all are treated equally by their church and society. It seems that abandonment of the poor is a tradition we are successfully keeping alive in Ireland.
