Extensive flooding at graves in Boyle cemetery

A former mayor of Boyle claims extensive flooding has taken place at a graveyard in the town.

Jane Suffin claims the latest episode of flooding at Assylinn cemetery began last October, but has significantly worsened in recent days.

She says funerals have been forced to use a detour over the past couple of weeks because of extensive flooding on approach roads.

Ms Suffin also claims several of the graves themselves are submerged in water and is calling on Roscommon County Council to rectify the matter.

The council declined to comment.
