Written 5 days ago by Newsroom


Westmeath County Council says it has now treated all areas of the River Shannon and River Al contaminated with oil.

In a statement, it said it’s continuing to work in conjunction with Inland Fisheries Ireland, Waterways Ireland, National Parks & Wildlife Services, Roscommon County Council and other voluntary agencies in the clean-up effort.

The situation will be closely monitored over the next number of days, while investigations into the source of the pollution remain on-going.
