Advice not to enter – Strandhill Beach & Dorrins Strand

Advice not to enter remains in place

Following on from the high levels of Intestinal Enterococci at Strandhill beach and Dorrins Strand, investigations and internal laboratory controls by the contract laboratory were undertaken.  To date no obvious cause of contamination has been identified.

Sligo County Council are carrying out further investigations and are liaising with Irish Water in relation to all Urban Wastewater treatment infrastructure in the area; to date they have no reported incidents.  Further monitoring will also be undertaken.

The Advice not to enter will remain in place until samples at both locations return satisfactory results.

Sligo County Council appreciates the publics co-operation in relation to this advice.
