Maintenance levels in old Sligo Cemetery “embarrassing”

The level of upkeep at the old graveyard at Sligo cemetery has been branded ‘embarrassing’.

Overgrowth and a general lack of attention to the amenity has led to urgent calls for money to be ringfenced for consistent maintenance works.

Fianna Fáil Councillor Tom MacSharry believes that at minimum, a sufficient grass cutting programme should be implemented there.

Councillor MacSharry, who visited the graveyard recently, was shocked to see how neglected it was.
