Burial-plot greed sparks grave concerns in town

PARISHIONERS in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, have been told they should only seek grave space they "strictly require" in order to conserve space in local cemeteries.

Last weekend, in the St Eunan's Cathedral Parish Newsletter, parishioners were asked to make the "best use" of the available burial ground in the town's two cemeteries at Leck and Conwalit as the local population continues to grow at a rapid rate.

Letterkenny Town has a population of some 20,000 and growing, the vast majority of whom are Catholics.
