A survey of the footpaths in Tipperary graveyards will be carried out after a priest tripped and fell during a funeral.

The incident happened in Moyne recently.

The priest was not injured but Tipperary County Council have agreed to carry out a survey to assess the condition of all the walkways in the county’s graveyards to see where repairs are most urgently needed.

Fianna Fail Cllr John Hogan says the next step will to secure the funding to carry out the badly needed work.
