Council to look into providing memorial wall for cremated remains at Carrick-on-Suir cemetery

Tipperary Co. Council has agreed to examine a councillor's proposal to provide a memorial wall to store urns holding cremated remains in Carrick-on-Suir's St Mary's Cemetery. 

Carrick-on-Suir SF Cllr David Dunne put forward the proposal at Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District's monthly meeting.  

He explained that boxes to store urns would be inset in the wall and accessed by a key.

He said it was a project the Council should investigate as space was running out at the town's cemetery on the Dungarvan Road. This wall may be a way of freeing up more space, he suggested. 

Cllr Dunne said there were a lot of people interested in placing their loved ones ashes somewhere safe and pointed out that there was a memorial wall in a cemetery at Ballybeg in Waterford City. 

Carrick Municipal District Engineer Willie Corby said the town cemetery in Nenagh was relatively new and had a memorial wall. 

 He agreed to look into Cllr Dunne's proposal.
