“Mayo County Council coped as well as it was possible with the resources available to it with these unprecedented weather conditions,” according to acting county manager Joe Beirne. The top executive in the council made these remarks at the annual budget meeting of the council where he outlined the efforts made by the council to ensure the county got through the recent cold snap as well as possible. Mr Beirne told the meeting that since the onset of the first frosts at the end of November the council has carried out more than 60 gritting runs on 900km of national and regional roads, while for the total winter season of 2008/2009 it carried out 85 gritting runs (the winter season lasts until April).
Now that the ice has melted and the snows have disappeared, people are really appreciating the opportunity to get out of the house and travel in a manner that was denied them during the cold snap.
