Mayo County Council announces closure of all public car parks at beaches in the county

Date: 09-04-2020

Mayo County Council have today taken the decision to close access to public car parks at all beaches across the county,  also at Croagh Patrick and Westport Skate Park for the foreseeable future.

The decision was made following consultation with An Garda Siochana

A Spokesperson for Mayo County Council has confirmed that “Current Government guidelines in place are clear that all citizens should not be travelling further than 2km from their home except for essential purposes. With the good weather and Easter weekend approaching we have taken the  decision to implement these closures to beach car parks to make it clear that people outside the immediate 2km area should not visit public beaches at this time.”

Mayo County Council strongly encourages everyone to conscientiously follow the guidance issued by our health professionals in relation to COVID-19. This includes staying at home unless undertaking an essential journey or exercising within a 2km limit of your home.
