Following on from last week’s announcement that a meeting has been called for this Thursday night (Youth Centre 8pm) in Fermoy with the hope of setting up a voluntary group to help with the upkeep of Kilcrumper old cemetery, those behind the move say there has been ‘a good response’ from people interested in getting involved with the project.

“Some are interested in the hands-on work, and more are very interested in the research and history of the graveyard. We have already had a few offers of equipment from local business, which we appreciate, and which will be acknowledged if we are successful in getting the project off the ground,” John Fenton, one of the organisers behind the initiative said.

“Thanks to Patricia Messinger for her interview and interest on C103 – it was much appreciated and thanks also to Liam Howard in The Avondhu, for the article which they featured.

“Please note the meeting will be going ahead in the Fermoy Youth Centre at 8.30 on this Thursday evening. Please remember this project can only go ahead with a good public response, so please try to come along to the meeting no matter how small a contribution you could make.”
