No funding available for works in new cemetery in Ballymote

There’s currently no funding in place to tackle safety issues at the new cemetery in Ballymote.

Calls have been made for improvement works there following complaints from a number of elderly people who have been visiting the graveyard and are said to be finding it difficult to use a pathway during wet weather.

While the path has been deemed dangerous and in need of resurfacing, a funding application for works won’t be applied for until next year.

Local Fine Gael Cllr Dara Mulvey says it’s crucial that the works be carried out.
