Swimming is temporarily prohibited in four Irish beaches

Four beaches in Ireland, all along the Dublin coast, have been marked as unsafe for swimming. 

Our friends over in JOE first spotted this on Splash, the national bathing water information website.

They say that four beaches have been found to be unsafe for swimming because of contamination 'due to suspected sewage discharge from waste water treatment plant/sewer network/CSO.'

The beaches where bathing has been temporarily prohibited are, Skerries south beach, Balbriggan front strand beach, Rush north beach and Loughshinny beach.

There is a ban on swimming for the next few days and people are advised not to go in the water or they may become ill from the bacteria.
