A grant from Galway Co Council, secured by Cllr. Jarlath McDonagh, to carry out enhancement works in the new cemetery at Lackagh has seen work, now complete, carried out, comprising of the provision of kerbing and footpaths in the cemetery, and filling inside the entrance gate. Galway County Council has also supplied ducting and appropriate bends for a public light which will be sited near the main gate, generously sponsored by Brendan Reilly, Lackaghmore and his company Electric Skyline, and which will be installed shortly.
These works will greatly enhance what already is a beautiful cemetery.
In recent years, great work has been carried out in both the old and the new cemeteries, and this is a credit to the leadership involved and the great work provided by the cemetery committee. This work is also enhanced by the tremendous contribution made by the TUS employees and the area. Lackagh new cemetery was first opened in the first years of this millennium after the land for the cemetery was generously donated to the community by the Flynn family. The cemetery holds a special place in people’s lives and improvement works are always welcome. This additional enhancement work should have the cemetery looking resplendent for the annual Parish Cemetery Mass in August.
