New Section of Lough Inch Cemetery Opened
The new section of Lough Inch Municipal Cemetery, Ballynahinch was officially opened today, Friday 25 October with the completion of the Phase II development. The expansion, which provides a further 237 burial plots, began in May 2018, and cost in the region of £148,000.
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Charlie Casey, who officially opened the new section said, “I am pleased to be here to open this new area within the cemetery. The completion of this phase has vastly improved the way the cemetery looks and will provide the people of this district with a more attractive place to come and remember their loved ones.
“I particularly want to thank all those who have visited the cemetery during the development works for their patience and co-operation. I am sure they would agree that the improvements made have been worth it.
“Finally, I would want to mention all those who made this project possible: consulting engineers White Young Green and Whitemountain, the contractors who delivered the scheme. It is to their credit that the development was completed to a high standard of workmanship and quality of finish.”
