Six Irish beaches fail water standard check

Irish beaches fail safety standard
Following a review of Irish beaches by the Environmental Protection agency six Irish beaches have failed to pass the water standards required for bathing.
Three beaches in Dublin; Merrion Strand, Portrane and Loughshinny along with beaches in Galway; Clifden, Ballyloughane, and Trá na bhForbacha.
Out of the 140 beaches however, according to the EPS’s report, 120 of the Irish beaches were said to be ‘excellent’ or ‘good’. The rest were classed as ‘sufficient’. 
So what does this mean? It means that people can still use the beaches but are advised to check the quality of the water before using it. You can check it out on this very helpful website called This is a website which “the national bathing water information website for identified bathing waters around Ireland.” It allows you to check out the latest bathing water quality, if there are any current incident warnings or notifications and more information about your favourite beach.”
