This is what a new state-of-the-art crematorium that is being built at Dardistown cemetery by the Glasnevin Trust will look like.
The new structure will be non-denominational and will cost €5m to build.
Commenting on the new building, George McCullough, the CEO of the Glasnevin Trust, said:
“Once open, Dardistown crematorium will operate six days a week, providing a much needed service for the greater north Dublin area, as well as Louth Meath and Cavan. The new crematorium will offer a peaceful and tranquil environment for people to visit and pay their respects to their loved ones."
Building is set to begin in July and the crematorium is due to be finished by Summer 2016.
There are currently three crematoria in Dubliin, at Glasnevin Cemetery, Newlands Cross, and Mount Jerome.
