The council has appointed Donaghmore Construction Ltd to carry out extension works at Carnmoney Cemetery.

The project is expected to create up to 500 new burial plots within the existing boundary of the cemetery.

More than 20 companies submitted tenders for the work at O’Neill Road, with Donaghmore Construction submitting the lowest compliant tender - £235,489 excluding VAT.

The council is still awaiting planning permission for the project.
