Leave No Trace This June Bank Holiday Weekend
On this bank holiday weekend, Mayo County Council calls on people to be responsible when enjoying the outdoors and to leave no trace.
We are calling on the public who are visiting beaches, amenity areas and beauty spots over the weekend, enjoying the outdoors, to take home their litter and to always park responsibly in designated spaces so as not to block emergency or farmer access.
Public toilet facilities at our blue flag beaches and amenity areas are open with additional bins and portaloos in place in many visitor locations. Lifeguards will be on duty over the weekend at Carrowniskey, Carrowmore, Old Head, Bertra, Ross, Keem, Keel, Silver Strand (Dugort) and Mulranny beaches. We would like to remind the public to always exercise caution when near water, and to swim, whenever possible, at lifeguarded beaches.
Our Municipal District Offices continue to work closely and creatively with hospitality businesses to provide outdoor dining facilities in public realm spaces in our towns and villages. While additional litter control measures will be in place in many locations over this Bank Holiday weekend, people are urged to be responsible and to take home their litter.
Please be mindful of the Covid restrictions that remain in place. In working together, we can look forward to brighter days ahead. Stay Safe.
