Swimming Bans In Three Spots In Dublin

Swimming Bans

Swimming bans remain in place at three popular swimming spots in Dublin.

It’s after an overflow at the Ringsend water treatment plant sent sewerage flowing into Dublin Bay last week.

The bans were lifted at all beaches in the Dún Laoghaire/Rathdown area last night after tests found the water quality had returned to normal.


Dublin City Council says it will decide whether to lift the bans at Dollymount, Sandymount and Merrion strands later today.
