Due to protestor activity and safety considerations, attempts to remove the truck from the location and restore access to the road had to be suspended overnight. Access to the west side of the L1203 will be restored from 08:30 this morning. Shell E&P will continue to work with both the Gardaí and Mayo County Council to resolve the situation. A further update will be provided later today.

Shell E&P Ireland apologises for the inconvenience caused to all members of the public affected by the road blockage.
