Tipperary County Council has once more moved to clarify the situation regarding access to St Patrick’s Cemetery in Clonmel.

The graveyard has recently been closed off to vehicles with a new car park provided beside it.

There has been strong opposition to the move with thousands of signatures collected in a petition by the St Patrick’s Cemetery Committee.

Clonmel District Director Sinead Carr says access is being restricted to just a very small number of people and only in exceptional circumstances.
