Community Update on the Magheracloone Subsidence Incident – 16.04.2020

Posted on 16.04.2020 - updated on: 16.04.2024

16th April 2020


Our aerial survey carried out on 15th April has identified a crownhole over the old Drumgossatt mine workings. This crownhole, which is approximately 6 metres in diameter, is located entirely within Gyproc owned lands and is not close to any private homes, public infrastructure or bordering roads. It is located 280 metres north-west of the R179, and 280 metres east of the nearest dwelling. 


Gyproc personnel are on site carrying out assessments and putting in place arrangements to secure the area. In keeping with best practice, we have notified all relevant Governmental and County Council authorities. We will continue to monitor and survey the area and provide updated information to keep people informed.
