The failure of Ross beach in Killala to meet the required EU bathing water standards comes as no surprise according to Fine Gael councillor Jarlath Munnelly who said it was a direct result of the failure to provide a sewage treatment in the town. Apart from Ross beach in Killala, there was good news for the vast majority of the beaches in Mayo which were included in the report. There were 15 Mayo beaches in the county tested, with Ross beach being the only one to come in with a poor result.
