There are no traffic restrictions in place for the Annual Intercession for the Dead services at Altnagelvin and Ballyoan Cemeteries this Sunday, June 5. However the public are advised to cooperate fully with stewards.
For those attending the Catholic Cemetery Sunday in the City Cemetery the following Sunday, June 12 at 5.30pm, however, a one-way traffic system will be in place.
Danny McCartney, parks maintenance and cemeteries manager with Derry City and Strabane District Council has urged the public to adhere to the one-way traffic system and where possible to leave all vehicles outside the City Cemetery boundary walls and to follow the advice of stewards who will be position 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.”
