Red flag flying at Lahinch as swimming and bathing prohibited

On the advice of the HSE, Clare County Council has this morning raised a Red Flag at Lahinch Beach, indicating a bathing prohibition at this location until further notice.
The restriction has been introduced after the results of routine bathing water samples showed elevated levels of bacteria.
In accordance with An Taisce’s Blue Flag programme, the Blue Flag at this bathing area will be removed until such time as the water quality improves.
Red flags have been issued at Lahinch on a number of occasions in recent years.
