Object to Glasnevin bid to build chapel over stillborn babies' graves.
This petition had 15,540 supporters
Plans to build a car park and chapel over the unmarked graves of thousands of stillborn babies and destitute children and adults at Glasnevin Cemetery have been labelled "deeply insensitive and insulting to any life".
Trustees of the historic Dublin cemetery want to build a chapel on the St Paul's section of the burial site to commemorate 232 citizens who died during the 1916 Rising and are interred there.
A number of Associations, individuals and groups are submitting Submissions to object to An Bord Pleannála before the deadline of January 16th.
Many 1916 relatives are shocked at this proposal and it certainly goes against the 1916 Proclamation which promotes "cherishing all of the children of the nation equally”.
Please support by adding your name to this online petition and/or submitting your objection to An Bord Pleanála before January 16th. Here are 3 news articles for you to read about what is proposed:
