Landslide blocks major tourist route to Connemara

A major landslide in Galway has closed off one of the most popular tourist routes in the county.

The landslide began yesterday evening outside Clifden after heavy rainfall.

Around 4,000 tonnes of bog land collapsed onto the N59 - the main route into Connemara from Galway city.

Galway County Council have worked throughout the night - however they have warned that the collapsing bog land was still unstable with bog continuing to “flow” onto the road.
