Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell said   “I went to the Cemetery this morning after being contacted by concerned relatives of those buried in this section after reports of damage there.

There was damage to a number of holy ornaments, flower pots and other bits and pieces that families had placed on graves.

I spoke to council staff who have done a good job in clearing up some of the mess and also spoke to a number of relatives who were very upset by this.

It’s been just a month since the last incident there.

There is a mounting catalogue of vandalism incidents of graves in the City Cemetery over the past year and that’s not including the burning of a car in the grounds.kevin

I would once again appeal for these senseless actions to stop and if anyone knows the culprits to contact the PSNI.
