A detail from the Glasnevin burial registers for 30 September 1917, listing Augustine Dumay, Michael Byrne, and Thomas Ashe, all of whom were buried in the cemetery on the same day. While Ashe was - is - the most famous of the burials, an investigation of the lives of the others buried that day reveals other layers of Dublin's social history that can be overlooked by a focus on the more famous political funerals (Glasnevin Trust).
