The Irish Aviation Authority has indicated a restriction on the flying of aircraft shall apply in the vicinity of Ceann Sibéal, where beehive huts have been constructed, and Dunmore Head.

The restriction is in place until 8pm (2000hrs) on May 26th.

The Irish Aviation Authority also indicated no drone, operating privately or under aerial works permission, may operate within the restricted area – and may be subject to seizure by An Garda Siochana.

State aircraft and aircraft of the Irish Coastguard Service are exempt from the restriction.

It comes as Star Wars cast members Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver were spotted arriving in Belfast International Airport yesterday ahead of filming at Mallin Head in Donegal.

Sources close to production in Ceann Sibéal have indicated filming west of Dingle is likely to begin around May 20th.
