Heading To The Beach And Couldn’t Give A Shit About Raw Sewage? Here’s A Map Of Ireland’s Red Flag Beaches


ARE you and your family too hot to give a shite about swimming in hazardous materials? Why not try one of the dozens of suspiciously quiet beaches and waterways across the country that still allow millions of gallons of raw sewage to be discharged freely into the system.

With 43 areas where the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) state rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal waters are all contaminated with human and agricultural waste, there is no shortage of shit soaked havens to let your family splash around and ingest all manner of highly dangerous parasites and organisms while cooling down in the hot Summer sun.

Why not try Duncannon in the sunny southeast where untreated water spews into the estuary daily, along with Rush and Howth in Dublin, An Spideál and An Cheathrú Rua in Galway, Kilmore Quay in Wexford; the list is endless and you too can soak in some proper e coli while developing some serious health conditions.

Play toss the turd in places like Merrion Strand or Youghal Front Strand. How about swallowing a nappy in Arklow or simply contracting an unknown virus in Ballycotton. The choice is endless.
