A bathing prohibition has been put in place at a popular Blue Flag beach in Co Waterford.
According to Waterford City and County Council, bathing water at Councillors Strand in Dunmore East has been temporarily prohibited due to the discovery of bacteria levels above safe levels.
The decision was made after water samples were tested and revealed unsatisfactory results.
