Graveyard transfer issue is raised

At a recent meeting of Banbridge District Council, Councillor David Herron questioned what would happen to the Old Graveyard at Dechomet once the new supercouncil was in operation.

He was advised that if the graveyard is located within the Slieve Croob area, as was suspected, responsibility would transfer to the new Newry, Mourne and Down Council post April 2015.
