There has been a call for Naas Town Council to finance the creation of Columbarium Wall in St. Corban’s Cemetary.

A columbarium wall is a structure which allows placing of cremation urns into individual stores or niches which are sealed and may be marked with a memorial plaque.

Typically these are located outdoors but there may be a possibility of using the chapel in the cemetery grounds.

The call came at Naas Town Council’s monthly meeting last Tuesday, July 16 from Cllr. Willie Callaghan, who noted that cremation was becoming more and more popular.

Cllr. Callaghan’s call specified that the Council include finances in the 2014 Budget to provide for the wall.

The members were told by Council officials that it was open to them to consider making a provision in next year’s budget.

At the same meeting, Cllr. Seamie Moore called for the five roundabouts on the ring road to be named after the five members of the Kildare team of 1928 who were from Naas.

The meeting wasn’t sure if that’s a decision for the Town Council or not.

Cllr. Darren Scully, the chair of the County Council’s Protocol SPC said they would look into it.
