'Jo Maxi' visits Ireland's first pet cemetery in Kilmolin, Co. Wicklow. Geri Lalor meets the owner, Bob Anderson, who was inspired to open it after seeing a television programme about similar services in America.
The cemetery opened in March 1989 and by November that year there had been 350 burials, mainly cats and dogs. Bereaved owners have a choice of three options: burial in a communal garden, a private plot or a deluxe grave.
A report for 'Jo Maxi' broadcast on 21 November 1989.
