Mayo County Council has made the decision to close all Playgrounds and Skateparks in the County as of today, Friday, March 20.
Cllr Brendan Mulroy, Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, said they came to this decision due to non-compliance with social distancing recommendations by the HSE.
“This is not an easy decision for the council to take, but the general public have inundated the council with complaints about large gatherings at these areas in recent days. Stay safe and keep your distance from each other,” said Cllr Mulroy, in a statement.
The move was welcomed by Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary, who said this was the right decision.
