HC Deb 11 March 1901 vol 90 cc1168-9
MR. COGAN (Wicklow, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Kilfee burial ground, in the Ballycullen electoral Division of the Rathdrum rural district, county Wicklow, which is under the Rathdrum Rural District Council, is at present unprotected by any fence, and is consequently over run with cattle and sheep, which injure the graves and memorials; and that this cemetery was originally twice its present size, but has been reduced by the owner of the land in which it is situate converting it into a cattle walk; and whether the Local Government Beard will take steps to have this cemetery restored to its original size, and have it properly protected.


The clerk of the rural council states that the fencing of this burial ground, which had been broken in places, has now been restored. It is possible that the cemetery was originally larger, but in regard to that matter the Local Government Beard has no information and no jurisdiction.
