The roads are only closed for this weekend

A popular spot on Mount Leinster for tourists and locals was closed last weekend due to the Covid-19 crisis. 

Following consultations with An Garda Síochána and a review of potential public health issues, the Council closed the section of roadway known as The Nine Stones serving the access route to Mount Leinster from 10am to 6pm on both Saturday, March 28 and Sunday March 29.

The local authority said they were doing it "in the interests of public health".

The road was closed from the Corrabut Gap side at Kilbrannish and on the Borris side at Tomduff Cross.
