Reilig Odhrain (St Oran's Burial Ground)
Reilig Odhrain (St Oran's Burial Ground)
The burial ground takes it name from St Oran, a follower of Columba. Legend recounts that he volunteered to be buried alive in order to prevent the walls of the first church collapsing. The burial ground itself is famous as the last resting place of many Scottish and Irish kings; however the last Scottish monarch to be buried here was Lulach in 1058. In 1994, John Smith, leader of the Labour Party between July 1992 and May 1994, was laid to rest in Reilig Odhrain.
