The Columbarium Wall at Shannon Crematorium.

RATH Cemetery will see a Columbarium Wall built and opened in 2021.

At the meeting of the Tralee Municipal District of Kerry County Council on Monday, Fine Gael Cllr Jim Finucane asked that funding be provided for the construction of the wall at the Tralee cemetery.

Columbarium Walls are used to accommodate family urns for use in cemeteries and consecrated ground. The first Columbarium Wall in the county has just been completed and is due to open shortly in the new Killarney Burial Ground.

A commitment has been given by the Council that a similar Wall will be constructed in Rathass and planning will be progressed through 2021.

Cllr Finucane said it was a sensitive issue and many people were waiting for this development. He asked Council Management if they could assure the public that the wall will be concluded and opened in 2021 and he was given that assurance.
