Formerly a cemetery dating from 1552.  Associated with historic St. Catherine's Church off Thomas Street, the 0.16 hectare site was developed as a public parking 1985.  Burials ceased in 1894 and the Representative Church Body handed over the Church and graveyard to the Corporation in 1969.  The whole area is steeped in history and is well remembered for Robert Emmet's execution in front of the church on Thomas Street in 1803.
