The sense of ancient mystery enshrouding the old walled cemetery in south Belfast has long fascinated historians and local people alike.Friar’s Bush is the site of the medieval friary of St Patrick and contains the mysterious ‘Friar’s Stone’ with the implausible date, ‘AD 485’ inscribed on it.With the foundation of Belfast in 1610, the site became a graveyard for people of all denominations, but especially for the increasing Catholic population drawn to the rising industrial city from all parts of the north and west of Ireland.

It also broadens the social circle beyond close friends or coworkers.

I would argue that even in the past ten years it has changed radically.

These sites are not under the control of St Anthonys, Willowfield, and St Anthony's is not responsible for the contents of such sites.

The ‘Plaguey Hill’, were the bodies were buried just inside the gates, now stands as a grim memento of that period.

In 1995 the Irish Government presented the trustees of the graveyard with a special plaque signifying its role as Belfast’s official Famine site.

Special Belfast Sightseeing Halloween tours of the site are also available via the Belfast Sightseeing website.
