Parish Graveyard Maintenance

Published on September 2, 2022

The 2021 Annual Report estimates the cost of essential maintenance programme at All Saints, New Shanakyle and Old Shanakyle at €6,000 p.a. The church gate collection, due to be taken up on the 15/16th October, realises €4,500. The
shortfall of €1,500 is largely made up by the sale of burial plots at All Saints. This is financially unsustainable into the future and may result in a greatly reduced annual maintenance programme in 2023. We wish to acknowledge the great work
done by our FÁS CE workers and many volunteers who keep our parish burial grounds in such pristine condition. Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir. Ní neart go cur le chéile
