Retarring work will be carried out at the cemetery from Monday, April 26 until Sunday, May 2, necessitating a temporary road closure from April 29 and limited access to the site.

Visitors to the main cemetery area are asked to enter and exit the cemetery through the Creggan gate only. Any visitors to the lower new area of the cemetery should enter and exit via the Lone Moor Road gate.

Streetscape and Cemeteries Manager with Derry City and Strabane District Council, John Quinn said: “These are much needed maintenance works and it’s hoped that they won’t cause too much disruption at the site and we will try to accommodate visitors as best we can for the duration of the work. But we would ask visitors to please assist with the movement of traffic by following the instructions regarding access, only using the lower entrance to access the new area of the cemetery. We apologise for any inconvenience while the work is being completed and thank you for your patience.”
