“Gyproc are maintaining the surveys in place that monitor the lands and roads in areas that relate to their mining workings,” a letter from Pat McEnaney, Community Liaison Officer with Gyproc, wrote to Monaghan County Councillor Colm Carthy on April 9.

The correspondence continued by stating that the Covid-19 pandemic would not distract from this process.

In addition to monitoring, the R179 (in the Magheracloone area) would also be prepared for the installation of extensometers, which would see the level of monitoring under that road at the same level that it is on the LP4900, the letter confirmed.

This process was expected to be concluded within four weeks of the correspondence. It would involve a small team of people who would observe HSE guidelines on Covid-19, Mr McEnaney added.

The letter concluded by reiterating Gyproc’s commitment to the completion of works at the site of the September 2018 subsidence event.
