This bank holiday weekend, Mayo County Council is calling on everyone to be responsible when enjoying the outdoors and to leave no trace.
People visiting beaches, amenity areas and beauty spots over the weekend, enjoying the outdoors, are urged 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 the county’s blue flag beaches and amenity areas are open with additional bins and portaloos in place in a number of 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.
The public are asked to exercise caution when near water, and to swim, whenever possible, at lifeguarded beaches.
The Municipal District Offices in the county are working with dining facilities in public realm spaces in towns and villages.
Additional litter control measures will also be in place in many locations across the county over this Bank Holiday weekend.
The local authority calls on everyone to be mindful of the Covid restrictions that remain in place and to Stay Safe. In working together, they say, we can look forward to brighter days ahead
