Posted by


A NEW traffic plan for Rath Cemetery will be developed this year as well as an access road around the new section of the graveyard.

At the meeting of Tralee Municipal District, which was held online on Tuesday, Cllr Johnnie Wall asked the Council to develop a traffic plan for Rathass graveyard as he said it needs some kind of system.

In reply, he was told that the Council’s Environment Department will develop a traffic plan for the burial ground during 2021, incorporating a one-way system and improved signage where necessary and will also construct an access road around the new section of the burial ground.

Also during the meeting, Mayor of Tralee Terry O’Brien asked for an update on the caretaker position in the graveyard.

He was told that the recruitment process to select an appointee for the position of Burial Ground Registrar/Caretaker for Rath Graveyard has been completed and it is expected that the appointee will take up the position early in the New Year once all necessary staffing arrangements have been finalised.

A private landscaping contractor has carried out works in the burial ground over the past few months and the Tralee MD have also assisted with any emergency issues as they arise.
