Cork City Council manages four Municipal Cemeteries
The four cemeteries provide a quality and caring burial service to bereaved families. The individual cemeteries are maintained to a high standard and therefore are considered by local residents within their catchment area as local parks and tranquil spaces for walking and sitting. They provide refuge for nature and their maintenance is tailored to increase bio-diversity.
