Located just inside the front entrance. St. Patrick, the patron Saint of the Irish, stands at the front of this cemetery. New Orleans has a large Irish population, so large in fact, that there are 3 St. Patrick cemeteries within this 1 block area. All 3 were formed in the 1840's. A bit of info about St. Patrick
