South Tipperary County Council are to extend St Mary’s Cemetery.
Cllr Seanie Lonergan was informed at the council’s January meeting that the purchase of the land will be completed in early 2014. The first phase is to remove the trees that overhang the dividing wall and remove the rooting system. Cllr. Lonergan said that this is very good news for the people of Cahir as the current cemetery is nearly at full capacity.
Cllr Lonergan has also learned that road crossing markings are to be put in place to make it safe for pedestrian to cross below Marshe’s shop in Ardfinnan.
