Plans Published For The Construction Of Multi-Denominational Cemetery In Fethard


Tipperary County Council has published plans for the construction of a multi-denominational Cemetery in Fethard. The proposed cemetery is to be enclosed by masonry boundary walls on all sides and to include a columbarium wall and be fully accessible. The planned cemetery will consist of 997 grave plots allowing two burials per plot.  The intention is to construct it over 3 phases with 552 plots in phase one. The plans also include provision of 33 car-park spaces inclusive of 3 Disabled parking spaces & 3 ‘Age Friendly’ spaces. The public can make submissions on the proposals until April 17th. The plans can be viewed online via the council website here   or in the council offices in Clonmel, Carrick on Suir and Nenagh.

The cemetery will be located on the Killenaule Road adjacent to the existing cemetery. There has been a rising demand for Columbarium Walls to provide a suitable resting place within a cemetery or graveyard for the placing of cremated remains. Each Columbarium Wall is divided into niches with a front panel allowing space for the deceased’s name or a memorial plaque.
