Gardaí are warning people not to go swimming after a woman had to be rescued from the sea in Dun Laoghaire this morning.
A garda spokesman told Independent.ie: “We are advising people not to go swimming as there are extremely high tides.”
Despite a Status Red snow-ice warning still being in place, some swimmers have ignored this.
People also defied a Status Red warning during Hurricane Ophelia, when videos and pictures emerged of people swimming in Salthill, Co Galway and at the 40-Foot in Dun Laoghaire.
