Over 40 staff from Limerick Civic Trust are in the midst of a giant clean-up of five Limerick cemeteries. Mount St Laurence, Mount St Oliver, St Patrick’s, St John’s and St Michael’s will all be cleared of rubbish, leaves and debris in preparation for Christmas.

The clean-up is part of ongoing maintenance work by Limerick Civic Trust at the various cemeteries throughout the year with the support of Limerick City & County Council. In the last two years, staff at the Trust have restored and repaired 50 graves and tended to over 150 graves in Mount Saint Lawrence. They have also been involved with the restoration of the Mortuary Chapel at the graveyard.

David O’Brien, CEO, Limerick Civic Trust said, “The team do tremendous work throughout the year maintaining the graveyards. This end of year giant clean-up ensures that the various cemeteries are presented well and in good order in the run up to Christmas when so many visitors are expected. I would like to thank the team for all their hard work, the supervisors for organising the days and the Limerick City & County Council for their support.”
