Trees in the cemetery at Ballinakill are so overgrown that one has broken through the wall of the nearby shed.

Trees in the cemetery at Ballinakill are so overgrown that one has broken through the wall of the nearby shed.

Cllr Mary Sweeney raised the matter at the recent meeting of the Portlaoise Municipal District.

“There’s a shed housing machinery and it’s extremely dangerous,” she said. “There’s a huge big tree broken through the back wall, the boughs of the tree are going through it.”

She was informed in a reply from Ms Martina Barron, environment section, that the matter will be examined.
