Council announces plans for Improvement works to Greenhill Cemetery 

23rd December 2021

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is progressing plans to undertake improvement works to Greenhill Cemetery in Omagh next year. 

The works will see the refurbishment of pathways to improve access around the cemetery. 

Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Errol Thompson, said:  

“These works are designed to improve access within the cemetery for visitors. Works will be undertaken on a phased basis and in a sensitive manner to minimise inconvenience to those visiting the cemetery.” 

Proposed works include replacing grass roadways into Sections A and B and the hardcore roadway into Section D with bitmac surfacing. Paving flags, gravel and kerbs behind and between headstones will also be replaced with a concrete path to improve access.  

Works will be undertaken on a phased basis to minimise disruption to those visiting the cemetery and will be paused during burials. Public access to areas undergoing improvement works will be restricted during works for the safety of visitors and site staff however access can be arranged by contacting Fermanagh and Omagh District Council in advance.  

Improvement works are anticipated to start in March and are expected to take approximately eight months.
