Tombstone Tuesday/Parnell

     Charles Stewart Parnell, Irish Nationalist leader died this week in 1891.  Though a member of the Anglican church, he was beloved by the Irish people for his support of land reform and home rule.  This stone wasn't put in place until 1940, but his name was still so well know, the tombstone of Wicklow granite bears only the name Parnell.
