The swimming pool in Castlerea had to be closed to the public today after an incident where a bottle was thrown over the wall and smashed into the pool.

Local Fianna Fail Cllr Paschal Fitzmaurice confirmed to Midwest News that an isolated incident had taken place, where a glass bottle was thrown over the wall and smashed, with some of the glass ending up in the pool.

Specialist equipment had to be brought in to hoover the glass from the pool and that work is expected to be completed by this evening.

Cllr Fitzmaurice told Midwest News this evening it was an unfortunate incident.
