Stories of priests being hunted down and murdered at Mass Rocks by priest-catchers and soldiers during the Penal era in Ireland persist to the present day. Using Ó Ciosáin’s (2004) tripartite taxonomy of memory, this paper explores the reasons why these images continue to dominate and reflect the persecuted nature of Catholicism.
