Is it true that they’re exhuming the bodies of the mass grave, located behind the monument on Lannagh Road (across from the Fire Station)? This contains the remains of people, particularly former patients of St. Mary’s (Asylum) who died in the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. I saw a lot of machines and activity down there, when I passed by.
