Widow’s Weeds


This morning.

Deansgrange Cemetery, Deansgrange, county Dublin.

Locals have complained to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council that they are unable to visit the graves of loved ones due to the overgrown graveyard.

      OK smarty-pants and will you be moving the graves as well or just the headstone? Also, will we be seeing an epidemic of kids being pulled into TVs?


      I saw that documentary about rapacious developers on burial grounds in the US in the 70s and I know where this ends.

    Looks great….” unable to visit the graves of loved ones due to the overgrown graveyard ” Unable? are the plants attacking people.

      Yes, they are. The Deansgrange Triffids, part plant, part teenage gang. They will dance on your taxi and ooze sap onto your windshield in spring the brats.

      There aren’t paths to all gravesides.
      In places you might have to cross two or three graves to get to your destination. The graves aren’t flat, there are all sorts of obstacles (surrounds, gravel, stones, mini-gravestones, plant-holders, etc). If all of that is obscured by weeds it would be difficult to navigate – especially for the elderly and infirm.

      With Jan here. My first thought was how nice it looks.

      Still, no excuse now not to clear the weeds. Unfair on families and their loved ones who have passed.
