Underneath the church are five long burial vaults containing the mummified remains of many of Dublin's most influential 17th, 18th and 19th century families, including the legendary Shears brothers and the highly decorated coffins of the Earl's of...more
The guide showed us the underground burial chamberes where there are perfectly preserved mummies of Vikings and early Dublin families. Great story teller but you really get a feeling of just how old the place is.
