Mayo County Council provides Ringbuoys at 547 locations in Co. Mayo and these are constantly inspected and monitored by Council staff in all Municipal Districts. The extreme weather conditions along the Atlantic coast occasionally results in coastal erosion and creates the necessity to replace ringbuoys and safety information signage when necessary at certain locations.  If there are any reports of missing or damaged ringbuoys, rope, attachments etc, please log this on
