Parishioners in burial dispute

n2s1A A DISPUTE over burial entitlements is raging in a County Waterford parish.

Strong feelings on the issue in the parish of Dunhill and Fenor prompted more than  200 people to attend a recent meeting which was held in the Dunhill Enterprise  Centre. It’s understood there are particular fears amongst members of the parish  that people who grew up in the area but now live elsewhere may not  accommodated with a plot in their hometown cemetery in the future.

As a result of the meeting, a proposal on burial entitlements has been sent to the  local Parish Pastoral Council.

Additional meetings are planned for the coming weeks to address the issue of who is eligible for burial in the graveyards of the parish.
