Mount St. Lawrence Cemetery


Limerick City and County Council, Cemeteries Section is seeking to install CCTV cameras in both Mount St. Lawrence (old and extension) cemeteries to provide additional security and public safety to those visiting and working within the cemeteries.

Mount St. Lawrence (old) Cemetery was opened to the public in 1849. It covers an area of 16 acres and, to date, in excess of 70,000 individuals have been interred therein.

In 1960, the first extension to the cemetery was developed and it has in excess of an additional 5,500 persons buried therein. In 2016, the second extension to the cemetery was developed providing an additional 675 burial plots.


We are seeking a response from members of the public on the following questions:

  • What do you think about the installation of CCTV?
  • Do you feel unsafe in the cemetery?
  • Would you feel safer in the cemetery with CCTV?
  • Have you any other comments you would like to make?


Please click on "Make a Submission" to respond to these questions


Note: Closing date for observations and or comments is Friday 12th of June 2020 at 17:00 Hours.
