Wexford County Council invites the public to make formal submissions for the proposed name of its cemetery at Enniscorthy.

The proposal should reflect the local townslands, landscape, culture or historical persons associated with the area. Place names should be easily pronounced, and the use of the Irish Language is encouraged, where possible.  The name proposed, or one very similar, should not be in the electoral area. Proposals should also be cognizant of the multi-denominational/non-denominational nature of this municipal cemetery.

Please indicate which of the following suggestions you prefer: (pick one only)


  1. Summerhill Cemetery
  2. Blackstoops Cemetery
  3. Reilig Chnoc an tSamhraidh
  4. Reilig na Stolp Dubh
  5. Enniscorthy Cemetery
  6. Other

Closing date for receipt of proposals is 2nd July 2021.


Final Decision will be made by the members of Enniscorthy Municipal District in accordance with Place Naming Policy.
