Great news for sea swimmers along the north coast of Dublin – a prohibition notice has been lifted from Rush North beach and a Prior Notice from the popular Velvet Strand in Portmarnock.

This follows the latest Bathing Water Quality results from sample taken on Monday, last July 17, when all identified bathing waters have met the standard for “excellent” water quality apart from Loughshinny Beach which was deemed a “good” standard.

A re-sample will be arranged for 20/7/23 for this beach and an investigative sample collected today at Sutton beach will have results available on Friday next, July 21.

See Rush North beach above. The non-identified bathing water at Malahide Beach has also met with “excellent” status.
