Temporary Do Not Swim Notices Skerries South Beach and Loughshinny

Please be advised that  temporary Do not Swim Notices have been issued today for Skerries South Beach and Loughshinny for 72hours

Loughshinny

Please be advised that  temporary Do not Swim Notices have been issued today for Skerries South Beach and Loughshinny for 72hours due to an increase in the level of bacteria found in the water sample taken on Monday 27th  July. 

The likely cause is contamination from animals, birds, urban or agricultural activity to surface waters. 

Bathing Water quality result for monitoring samples taken on Monday 27th July was received this morning. The results met the standard for “excellent” for all identified bathing waters except for Skerries, South Beach and Loughshinny Beach which both met “poor” status.

As a result  Prohibition (Do not Swim) notices have been erected at both beaches.  Resamples have been taken today and results will be available on 31st July, 2020.

The non-identified bathing water at Malahide Beach (red flag) met with “sufficient” status and is being resampled also today.

Please be advised that the beaches remain open but beach users are asked to respect the ‘Do Not Swim’ notice as it has been put in place to ensure that the health of bathers not compromised.

Members of the public can check for water quality at any of the monitored bathing waters in Ireland in advance by accessing the EPA website at www.beaches.ie or by checking the notice board at the entrance to each beach.
