Having worked for many years in the tourism industry, Ann Kilcoyne joined Glasnevin Cemetery Museum in July 2013 as Sales Manager. Formerly with Ryanair in the UK and Waterford Castle in Ireland, Ann brings to Glasnevin a wealth of experience. Located a mere 2 miles from Dublin’s City Centre, there are over 1.5 million people buried in Glasnevin – that’s greater than the population of Dublin!
"All of these records are now online providing an invaluable search tool for those interested in researching their genealogy! It’s a very beautiful place with a rich cultural and social heritage that maps the timeline of our great city.
A new link into the National Botanic Gardens is now open and coupled with the introduction of a hop on-hop off bus service in 2014, Glasnevin is well placed to maintain its top 3 listing on Tripadvisor.
"I am very proud to be associated with Glasnevin and winning the Travelers Choice award on Tripadvisor this year is a great achievement; it’s a real testament to the tour guides and staff that work here 7 days a week and we all look forward to welcoming visitors from the USA and the rest of the world".
