Swimmers are being warned to stay out of the sea for at least 48 hours after heavy rainfall, due to pollution fears. The Environmental Protection Agency says it applies to all beaches at all times. It comes as the agency publishes its latest bathing water quality report. The report found four bathing areas - at Clifden Beach in Galway, Lilliput in Westmeath, Cúas Crom in Kerry and Balbriggan Beach in Dublin - failed to meet minimum standards last year. Henry McKean has been speaking to swimmers on Northside beaches this afternoon and joined us from Portmarnock beach. Find out about your local beach by logging onto Beaches.ie
