Cemetery Committee

 

Cemetery Committee

The Cemetery committee is a voluntary organisation that was established to help maintain the grounds of Ballyhaunis cemetery. This is only achieved because of the generous contributions we receive in the annual collection, of which we are very grateful.

The contributions are used to plant summer colour, complete several grass cuts, painting and general maintenance.

A cemetery mass is held annually to remember all those who rest there and prayers are said to mark  All Souls day in November. The dates are posted in the parish church newsletter.

If you are interested in genealogy and finding your ancestors, a recent addition to the grounds is a map of all graves with the corresponding names. This map is located at the back of the cemetery and can help you to easily locate your ancestors.

Regular meetings are held throughout the year and new members are always welcome. If you would like to join, watch out for upcoming meetings in the parish newsletter.
