Press Statement from Monaghan County Council
Following the emergence of a new sinkhole on lands owned by Gyproc, Monaghan County Council has closed the LP4900 local road at Drumgossat, Magheracloone as a precautionary measure, with immediate effect. The sinkhole measuring 9 metres in diameter is located 35 metres from the local road. Local diversions are now operating to the school and church and the road will remain closed until further notice.
The R179 Regional Road between Carrickmacross and Kingscourt is unaffected and remains open.
Monaghan County Council apologises to all local householders and businesses for the inconvenience.
