The council has confirmed a a one-way traffic system has been put in place for those attending the Annual Intercession for the Dead, which takes place at the City Cemetery this Sunday, 28 June at 5.30pm.

Danny McCartney, Parks Maintenance and Cemeteries Manager with Derry City and Strabane District Council has urged the public to adhere to the new one way traffic system.

He also urged people to, where possible, leave all vehicles outside the City Cemetery Boundary Walls and to follow the advice of stewards who will be positioned around the Cemetery.

“We would encourage the public to come early at least half an hour before the start of the service and to follow the signs and adhere to the advice given by the stewards,” he said.

“ Every effort is being made to ensure the traffic flows freely on the day.

“We would encourage the public to be patient and to allow extra time on the day to get to the Intercession,” he added.
