Memorial to the people buried in the Mousewood Graveyard in Monaghan will be unveiled today

A memorial to the people buried in the Mousewood Graveyard in Monaghan will be unveiled later.

The unmarked graveyard, in the Telaydan area, is thought to be the final resting place of thousands of people who died in the Monaghan Union Workhouse and the Fever hospital.

Locals joined together to create the memorial, which will be unveiled in Belguim Park this afternoon.

Pat McKenna created the memorial and said it was one of the most important jobs of his life.
