Community Update on the Magheracloone Subsidence Incident – 30.01.2020

Posted on 30.01.2020 - updated on: 16.04.2024

30th January 2020


During a routine inspection on the morning of 30th January, it was noted that a circular shaped crownhole hole measuring approximately 8m in diameter and 7m deep had appeared on the site of an area of depression which had been fenced off on December 10th. The area is located entirely within Gyproc owned lands and is 200 metres north of the R179, and 315m from the nearest dwelling.


The area of depression noted on the 10th was fenced off as it had the potential to develop further, which has now occurred.


Gyproc have advised the relevant authorities and have scheduled further analysis in the coming days.  Gyproc is confident it poses no risk to the public or public infrastructure, and will communicate any further details as we have them.
