St Conleth's cemetery upgrade works plan in Kildare town

St Conleth's Cemetery

A programme of upgrade works to improve St Conleth's Cemetery in Kildare town will be presented to councillors at the next area meeting in April.

The works will include an upgrade of footpaths and landscaping at the cemetery.

According to local councillor Suzanne Doyle great work takes place at the cemetery but an upgrade is now required by the council and should be identified as a priority.

The works will include a focus on footpaths and landscaping.

The design and work plan for the upgrade will reflect this and it will be delivered on a phased basis.

Currently there are pedestrian gates on either side of the main gate and another at the south end of the eastern boundary.

The enclosed area is very well served by paths.

The ground surface is very even. There is a area, which is walled on three sides within the annex, where old flowers and other waste from graves can be collected before removal.

It is expected that the plans for works will be available for local councillors to view at the April area meeting of Kildare and Newbridge municipal.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday April 25.
