Q.165 COUNCILLOR SOPHIE NICOULLAUD
CRES To ask the Chief Executive to put in CCTV to secure Bluebell Graveyard. Families expressed the wish to maintain the gate open 24h/day and now a solution needs to be put in place to secure the graveyard after being vandalised only last year.
CHIEF EXECUTIVE’S REPLY:
There are currently no plans to install CCTV at the above location. The gates have been left opened for many years without any previous issues, with the exception of last year’s serious event, and it is our experience that families do not want restrictions to visiting times. There are new apartments being built adjacent to the cemetery which should help alleviate any instances of anti-social in the graveyard through passive surveillance. All further episodes of serious anti-social behaviour should in the first instance be reported to Gardaí but residents and Parks service can continue to monitor the situation. Residents are welcome to discuss any further issues with the undersigned.
