Western praised for supporting local Parish’s vision for new cemetery

Western Building Systems is delighted to have completed a project that should pave the way for a new community cemetery in the Coalisland Parish of Ballyclog, Donaghenry.  

The local firm, which was working in an area adjacent to the location of the proposed new burial ground, has prepared the field and created access to the gardens, owned by the local Parish on a pro bono basis, as part of its annual support of local not for profit organisations.  

Parish Priest, Father Eugene O’Neill expressed his gratitude to Western for their generosity, 

“As a result of the important work undertaken at no cost by Western, we now hope to be in a position to extend our existing burial ground and add capacity that should last around 80 years.  On behalf of everyone in the Parish I would like to thank Martin McCloskey and his colleagues Shane, Cathal and Patrick who gave of their time and expertise to compete all the necessary ground and preparation works.” 

Western, based for more than 30 years on the outskirts of Coalisland, has carved out a reputation for itself as a leading specialist construction firm that delivers medium to large scale projects throughout the UK and Ireland primarily in the health, education, commercial and residential sectors.  It is also a well-known local home builder.
