The aims of this committee are to clean-up the graveyard in the short-term and to create a funding model which allows for its continuedmaintenance in the long-term.

Recent visitors to the graveyard will have noticed that a significant amount of work has already been carried out,which was funded out of some private resources and sponsorship. Plans are currently being put in place to undertake some additional basic remedial improvements.

It is hoped that the community here in Cobh, and especially people who have a family member buried in the graveyard,would support this initiative by making a donation to the St Colman’s Graveyard Go – Fund Me Page  or through the local credit union account.

There will be a Mass celebrated in the graveyard in mid-August and It is hoped that people will notice the huge progress within its environs.

If anyone would like to contribute in any way, please feel free to contact either Colman on 086/8038708 or Marita at [email redacted]
