Moving, historical cemetery. Walk towards the middle where you will see a memorial to the "volunteers", including Bobby Sands. A lovely, peaceful place.

Trying to find a Hugh and Margaret (Spencer) Bailie burial, anyone have any leads to where to find them. I know his son was married in the Drumbo Presbyterian Church and he says he was born in Belfast.
