Cllr Murray said initial exploration licences for townlands in the Charlestown and Swinford area were issued in 2010 and work has been carried out to assess the areas suitability for fracking.
Fracking is a controversial but lucrative and effective method of extracting gas from shale rock. It involves drilling wells deep underground and pumping in water, sand, and chemicals at high pressure to fracture the rock and release natural gas.
The major concerns around fracking centre on the possible risk of contamination of underground water systems and the harm this could cause for local residents, and particularly the farming and tourism sectors.

the EPA report says this practice is sustainable, then this will be happening where there is shale in Charlestown, Swinford, possible towards Foxford and Kilkelly as well.
Mayo needs to wake up to the reality that the controversial method of extracting natural gas from rock known as fracking could soon become a major issue in the county.
He pointed to a decision by Minister for the Environment in Northern Ireland, Mark Durkan, earlier this month which rejected a planning application from an Australian mining company to drill an exploratory borehole for shale gas Adidas Neo Advantage Shoes
Cllr Murray attributed the relative silence on the matter in Mayo to the fact that the areas affected here are on the periphery of the county, and many people may not be aware that they are Adidas Zx Flux Los Angeles
