Following a ban on swimming at four Dublin beaches earlier this weeksix beaches have been deemed as safe for swimming.

According to The Irish Times, the swimming prohibitions put into place at beaches such as Loughshinny, Rush North, Skerries South, Balbriggan, Claremont and Sutton/Burrow have been lifted.

Reportedly, the water at the six beaches has been proved as clean enough to swim in, but swallowing the water or washing oneself in the sea is not advised.

Swimming at Portmarnock's Velvet Strand is still prohibited for the time being.
