The smell is particularly strong during hot weather.

Residents in Ballaghaderreen say they have mounting concerns over a strong odour in the town in recent weeks.

The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed to Shannonside FM that they received a complaint on July 28th last and are currently investigating the source of the smell.

In a statement the local authority say they have also been notified of the unpleasant stench but are not in a position to act due to the licensing of the source.
