Massive Hole Opens Up On Grounds Of Monaghan GAA Club

The pitch of Magheracloone Mitchells GAA club has sustained major damage.

A large rift opened at the club's Kevin O'Reilly Park - which is located on the main Kingscourt to Carrickmacross Road - due to a mine collapse in the area.

According to the Meath Chronicle, a spokesperson for local company Gyproc, a plasterboard manufacturer, confirmed that there had been an incidence of subsidence.

"We are currently assessing the situation with the assistance of geological teams to ascertain both the reason for and the extent of the subsidence," said the company spokesperson.

"We are liaising with local residents and authorities in the area to advise them of the incident and keep them updated. Our main priority is the safety of local residents, our employees and ensuring no significant environmental impact."
