Enough is enough

Campbeltown Courier - - YOUR VIEWS -

A dev­as­tated wid­ower said this week that it had been a last re­sort to ap­proach the Courier in an at­tempt to get a col­lapsed wall at Kilk­er­ran Ceme­tery re­paired. It is not only up­set­ting for the fam­i­lies of the de­ceased to see the wall on which me­mo­ri­als are placed de­stroyed and ly­ing bro­ken for months, but it is also dan­ger­ous. A cor­don has now gone up around the wall in ques­tion but the re­main­ing sec­tion looks like it could fall at any mo­ment. It is in­ter­est­ing that an Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil re­port has re­vealed that head­stones which have not been main­tained by rel­a­tives will be laid flat, yet the coun­cil is tak­ing so long to re­pair its own dan­ger­ous struc­ture. It is a re­lief to hear that work to re­build the wall is sched­uled to start next week, so per­haps deaths like that of lit­tle Ciaran Wil­liamson, aged eight, who died when a head­stone fell on him in a Glas­gow ceme­tery, can be avoided in the fu­ture.
