A local councillor says Kilkenny County Council’s revenue of over €160,000 since 2014 from the sale of grave plots should be re-invested into improving the standards and security of our cemeteries.

The Kilkenny People last week revealed the income generated for the local authority from grave plots sales across the thirteen active burial grounds under its control.

Fianna Fáil Cllr Andrew McGuinness said: “While I understand the necessity in covering the costs associated with maintaining burial grounds and carrying out burials, I would like to see all of the income being re-invested into improving the standards of our cemeteries in terms of security in particular and also ensuring that staff are fully resourced to carry out their duties to a high standard."
