Yeats grave is right at the door of the church. Compared to the other tombstones, some of which are very old, Yeats tomb is very stark and plain. Yeats died in France, where he had gone to live, and his remains were transferred, at a later stage, to here, where he was born. The inscription (epitaph) is a famous couple of lines from one of his poems
"Cast a cold eye on Life , on Death. Horseman, pass by." W.B. Yeats

Yeat's Tomb attracts a lot of tourists of all nationalities - so there is the inevitable tea shop close by. A really lovely little place with lots of art and hand-crafts to attract the tourist. We did not linger there too long, as we were headed further.
