Large gorse fire outside Castlerea

Fire brigade units have extinguished a large gorse fire this evening outside Castlerea.

Units from Ballaghaderreen, Castlerea and Ballyhaunis fought the fire for several hours between Cloonbonniffe and Castlerea.

The road was closed for a number of hours but has now reopened.

The recent dry spell has raised the risk of gorse and forest fires.
