    The road is currently closed to traffic but is likely to reopen before 2pm.

    Diversions are in place.

  • Belmullet Gardai are advising motorists of flooding on the Bangor to Bellacorrick road this afternoon.

    There was large accumulations of rainfall over the last 24 hours which has made driving conditions difficult in the area.

    Gardai say the road is passable but drivers need to take care on the roads and reduce their speed.

  • The GP vacancies in both Glenamoy and Bangor are to be advertised next week.

    Mayo-based Minister Michael Ring says he has been informed by the HSE that the GP who's currently covering Glenamoy and Bangor will take up an appointment elsewhere, and the twp GP vacancies will be advertised separately  next week.

    It's understood the doctor currently covering these two areas of north Mayo has agreed to take up a permanent position in Laherdane from next February.
