VISITOR facilities and amenities at the world famous Sliabh Liag have been closed temporarily following a significant rise in Covid-19 cases in Donegal.
Donegal’s total number of Covid-19 cases passed 1,000 yesterday and now stands at 1,013 after the confirmation of 36 infections yesterday evening.
The incidence rate in Donegal is the highest in the country.
Sliabh Liag is a popular tourist attraction and last weekend was said to have experience ‘a huge influx of visitors’.
The decision has now been taken to close until further notice.
A statement said: “Comhlacht Pobal Shliabh Liag wishes to advise that visitor facilities and amenities at Sliabh Liag have closed temporarily until further notice.
