Milltown Cemetery, an established landmark of Nationalist Belfast, is often identified outside the realms of normal everyday burials, with the conflict of the past thirty years. Being the main Catholic burying ground for the city it is intertwined into the legacy of conflict.
Milltown Cemetery is a famous landmark the world over due to the Republican graves contained within it most notable being that of Bobby Sands, the 1981 hunger striker who died in the H. Blocks.
