Do Not Swim notice issued to Dublin beach has been extended following stormwater overflow

The notice was initially issued to Malahide Beach on Thursday after Fingal County Council found unacceptable levels of bacteria in bathing samples.

The notice was also issued to Front Strand Balbriggan due to stormwater overflow.

Following the extension, Fingal County Council stated that further testing will take place at both beaches.

Although Malahide Beach remains open, the county council has asked people to respect the ‘Do Not Swim’ notices which have been implemented “to ensure that the health of bathers is not compromised”.

If you intend to swim at any beach in Ireland, you are advised to check the water quality in advance.

This information can be accessed through the EPA website or the notice board at the entrance to any beach.
