Foulkstown  Cemetery
Welcome to the new members of the Foulkstown committee who have joined this year to help with the maintenance of the cemetery. We are grateful to the Cemetery Committee who are working tirelessly getting the cemetery in top shape for our Cemetery Mass in July. We are grateful too, to the many families who look after and tend to their graves, not just for the Cemetery Mass, but throughout the entire year. Unfortunately, some graves have no one left to look after them and we ask, where possible that neighbouring families might give them some care.
