Foulkstown Cemetery
We regret that due to persistent illegal dumping in Foulkstown, we have had to remove the refuse facilities (skip), that was intended only for flowers and grave items.  Some individuals were abusing this facility to unload household rubbish and constant appeals to desist from this action were ignored.  We regret having to do this but paying hundreds of euro to dispose of other peoples rubbish was unsustainable.  We now appeal to people to take their withered flowers and other unwanted grave items home and dispose of them in a proper manner.  Thank you for your cooperation.
