Massive crowds flocked to Dublin beaches to cool down after the hottest day ever recorded in the capital.
Photos show huge groups of people eager for a dip after a sweltering day. Burrow beach was packed with people of all ages, seemingly breaking all recent records. Portmarnock beach was also extremely busy and there were long traffic jams on the wooden bridge.
Water Safety Ireland have also issued a warning after the tragic death of Bradley Lulendo, 14, from Richmond Road in Dublin, who got into trouble swimming on Burrow Beach last week.
As a heatwave continues across Ireland, Water Safety Ireland has issued a stark reminder on the importance of water safety for all:
“The appeal comes in the aftermath of the tragic death of a teenage boy who got into difficulty while swimming in Co. Dublin. An average of nine people drown every month nationwide and Water Safety Ireland is urging the public to be mindful of the following advice during the current spell of warm weather.”
