Fenagh New Cemetery
The Cemetery Committee is pleased to announce that the new cemetery is now nearing completion. At this stage the committee would like to express out sincere thanks to all individuals and families who have contributed financially to the project to date and also to Fr Pat, Fr Sean and the Parish Pastoral Council for the substantial financial support received.  Letters of acknowledgement and certificates of plot purchases where appropriate have been sent to all involved. It is hoped to have the cemetery consecrated and blessed by Bishop Colm O Reilly as soon as some outstanding works are completed. These include seeding (when weather is favourable), erection of a Cross, planting of new hedgerows and Tarmacadam of entrance/car park. There is a shortfall in funding at present to allow us complete these works. We are appealing to all who still wish or have yet to contribute to the project, or buy plots to do so now, so as to enable us to complete the outstanding works. If anyone has any family members who are not living in the parish, but might wish to be associated with this project we would be grateful if you would inform them.
